Products by Suzanne Morrissette

Dr. Suzanne Morrissette (she/her) is an artist, curator, and scholar who is currently based out of Toronto. She is guided in this work by her roles as a daughter, partner, mama, sister, niece, aunt, granddaughter, friend, and colleague. Her father’s parents were Michif- and Cree-speaking Metis with family histories tied to the Interlake and Red River regions and Scrip in the area now known as Manitoba. Her mother’s parents came from Canadian-born farming families descended from United Empire loyalists and Mennonites from Russia. Morrissette was born and raised in Winnipeg and is a citizen of the Manitoba Metis Federation. As an artistic researcher Morrissette’s interests include: family and community knowledge, methods of translation, the telling of in-between histories, and practices of making that support and sustain life. Morrissette holds a PhD from York University in Social and Political Thought. Her forthcoming book But Have We Arrived? is based on this research and argues for the need to evaluate the spaces of inclusion that have been made for Indigenous people within a previously exclusionary centre of artistic representation. She currently holds the position of Assistant Professor and Graduate Program Director for two programs at OCAD University: Criticism and Curatorial Practices (MFA) and Contemporary Art, Design, and New Media Art Histories (MA).
