Craft and Community: Artist Talk
March 15, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Inter-media artist Leah Decter will reflect on developments in her practice, with a particular view to exploring intersections of craft and other media as conceptual elements in her work. The intertwining of social justice issues, socially engaged practices, craft processes and digital media gives Decter’s work a truly unique voice.
Leah Decter's work is rooted in the spaces where material conditions and lived experience intersect with social and political issues.
Decter holds an MFA in New Media from Berlin-based Transart Institute. She has exhibited widely in Canada and internationally in the US, UK, Australia and Europe.
Video screenings of her work include the Images Festival in Toronto, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Not Festival in Brooklyn NY and Malta Contemporary Art in Marsa, Malta.
This event is presented by the Manitoba Craft Council, aceartinc. and
Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery.
