MAWA: Cathy Busby

On Thursday, March 24, from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at MAWA, 611 Main Street, Cathy Busby will present “A Stimulant, A Conversation”.

Cathy Busby’s artwork is made up of installations and printed matter that are concerned with the way language influences attitudes and action. Since the 1990s, it has explored the ways emotions are mediated in culture. Discourse and textual analysis, as well as feminist perspectives related to social justice, inform her perspective. She will discuss her socially interactive and provocative practice. 

Cathy Busby has a PhD in Communication and was a Fulbright Scholar at New York University. She has an MA in Media Studies and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. 

Her work is represented in the collection of the City of Ottawa, the Nova Scotia Art Bank, the Canada Council Art Bank and the National Gallery of Canada.

Cathy’s current exhibition: EVERY LINE & EVERY OTHER LINE 
at PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts, to May 7. 

Curated by J.J. Kegan McFadden, EVERY LINE & EVERY OTHER LINE brings together work in photography and video by Cathy Busby, Bruce LaBruce, Brendan Fernandes, Suzy Lake and Arthur Renwick to consider what the face, and more precisely the mouth, reveals about colonization, revolution and gendered space.
