Creative Campus Galleries Lunch and Learn Series | Finale with Guest Speaker Jeff Thomas

Time 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Location HMC - Creative Campus Galleries, Room B-234, 4226 Duke of York Boulevard, Mississauga, Ontario, L5B 0G5

In conjunction with the exhibition Jeff Thomas’ Indians on Tour: Exploring Indigenous Experiences, Creative Campus Galleries and the Centre for Indigenous Learning and Support has produced a weekly Lunch & Learn series to learn about contemporary Indigenous discourse. This timely series provides space for dialogue between leading artists and thinkers and Sheridan students, staff, and faculty to question official histories, think about issues surrounding historical and contemporary representations of Indigenous peoples, and consider modes of decolonizing in our personal and professional lives. These events are free and catered by Nish Dish.

Exhibiting artist Jeff Thomas will close this series and talk about his illustrious career as a leading artist, writer, and curator. Thomas is nationally and internationally recognized for groundbreaking scholarship and innovative practice in the area of contemporary Indigeneity at the intersections of Native and non-Native cultures.

Thomas’ artwork is in major collections in Canada and internationally, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the National Gallery of Canada and The British Museum. He is most recently featured in the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Canada 150 responsive exhibition: Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood. In 1998, he was awarded the Canada Council’s prestigious Duke and Duchess of York Award in Photography, inducted to the Royal Canadian Academy of Art, in 2008 he received The Karsh Award in photography, and in 2017 received a REVAL Indigenous Art Award.
