Curated by Matthew Conte and Lesley McNaughton

12 September 2016 – 12 February 2017
Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG), Ottawa

questions, challenges, and dismantles how we understand, experience, and
embrace intersectional gender identities and expressions. Drawn from
CUAG's collection, these works expose and critique traditional notions
of how masculinities and femininities are performed.

The photographs selected from series by Jennifer Dickson, Gabrielle de
Montmollin, Becky Singleton, and Douglas Walker, and a video by Kent
Monkman, encapsulate the gendered body as transformative, unstable, and
temporary. These artworks radically challenge the status quo and
reimagine the concept of gender as multiple, complex, violent, and
beautiful. This exhibition is an invitation to radically reconsider your
lived experiences with gender and how it is continuously performed,
negotiated, and re-performed.

Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience
A project by Kent Monkman

Opening reception
January 26, 2017 6:30-8:30pm
University of Toronto Art Centre

January 26 to March 4, 2017: As both artist and curator, Kent
Monkman's first major solo-exhibition at the Art Museum at the
University of Toronto includes his own paintings, drawings and
sculptural works, in dialogue with historical artefacts and art works
borrowed from museum and private collections from across the country.
The exhibition narrates a story of Canada through the lens of First
Nations' resilience. University of Toronto Art Centre is located at 15
King's College Circle.

Kent Monkman's new, large scale project takes the viewer on a journey
through Canada's history that starts in the present and takes us back
to a hundred and fifty years before Confederation. With its entry
points in the harsh urban environment of Winnipeg's north end, and
contemporary life on the reserve, the exhibition takes us all the way
back to the period of New France and the fur trade. The Rococo
masterpiece The Swing by Jean-Honoré Fragonard is reinterpreted as an
installation with Monkman's alter ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, in
a beaver trimmed baroque dress, swinging back and forth between the
Generals Wolfe and Montcalm.

As both artist and curator, Kent Monkman's first major solo-exhibition
at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto includes his own
paintings, drawings and sculptural works, in dialogue with historical
artefacts and art works borrowed from museum and private collections
from across the country. The exhibition narrates a story of Canada
through the lens of First Nations' resilience.

With a focus on his new paintings and drawings, Monkman's visceral and
moving exhibition provides a searing critique of Canada's colonial
policies in response to celebrations of Canada's 150th birthday. As
Monkman explains, "The last 150 years—the period of
Modernity—represents the most devastating period for First Peoples,
including the signing of the numbered treaties, the reserve system,
genocidal policies of the residential schools, mass incarceration and
urban squalor."

After premiering at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, this
large scale exhibition will travel across Canada over the next two
years. A catalogue is forthcoming in the fall of 2017. It will be
published in English, French, and Cree.

UBC - Layers of Influence Tours

Thursday, January 26 | 7pm
Curator's Tour – Please note date change
Join curator Jennifer Kramer on a tour of Layers of Influence:
Unfolding Cloth Across Cultures. A sumptuous feast for the eyes, this
exhibition showcases stunning textiles from MOA's global collection
and explores the human connection to clothing across cultures.

The Institute of Advanced Studies at UCL introduces a series of
exciting events and a Research Reading Group under its research theme
'Planetary Futures'.

Planetary Futures asks as to the future of the planet. How is it
imagined, designed and theorised? What are its historical trajectories
and possible futures? Whether the impending ecological crisis,
socio-political movements, or the techno-scientific promises of life
on Mars, 'Planetary Futures' will generate dialogue across disciplines
and we invite participation from all who have interest in the
planetary, whether as a scale of inquiry or an object of study, from
the Anthropocene on earth to the future of humanity on Mars. The talks
will be of interest to those in the social sciences, particularly
Anthropology, Sociology, History, Politics, STS, Geography as well as
the Sciences, particularly Physics, Astronomy, Geology and Space
Science. The goal is to spur reflection on the construction of
planetary imaginaries and interrogate our current academic apparatus
for thinking about planetary futures.

The first talk is next Thursday 26th January at 5pm where 'space
artist' Nahum Mantra will be discussing the role of 'Art & Magic in
Space Exploration'. The Planetary Futures Reading Group will have its
initial meeting before the talk at 4pm in IAS Common ground (South
Wing Wilkins building)

All are welcome to attend.

For all queries, please contact the co-organisers<> or<>

Upcoming talks:
· Thursday 9 February 2017 (5-7pm): Jill
· March 2017 (TBC): Allen Abramson (UCL)

IGSF Second Annual Queer Research Colloquium, Montreal

Friday, January 27, 2017
9:30AM - 5:30PM
3475 Rue Peel, Montreal

Featuring Keynote by Scott L. Morgensen, Associate Professor and Graduate
Coordinator in the Department of Gender Studies at Queen's University

"Encountering Indeterminacy: Colonial Conditions and Queer Imagining."

Thinking retrospectively with queer anthropology, this paper asks how
epistemology and methodology transform when the category queer draws our
attention to excess, or the inconceivable. I return to Trinh T. Minh-ha's
interrogations of colonial anthropology to ask how her invitations to
attend to 'opacity' might interlink with potentials within queer inquiry.
Queer ethnographies of the violences of modernity disturb the colonial
structuration of knowledge within queer intellectual histories and invite
unanticipated thought. In response to ethnographers leading this work, I
ask how queer anthropology, and queer studies proceed when our questions,
and their potential resolutions recurrently open to new imagining.

Scott Morgensen is Associate Professor and Graduate Coordinator in the
Department of Gender Studies at Queen's University. He is the author of
Spaces between Us: Queer Settler Colonialism and Indigenous
Decolonization (University of Minnesota Press, 2011). He is past co-chair
of the Association for Queer Anthropology, and with Leela Viswanathan he
co-edits Journal of Critical Race Inquiry. His most recent essays have
appeared in the journals American Quarterly, Cultural Anthropology,
Frontiers, and TSQ, and in the collection Indigenous Men and
Masculinities edited by Kim Anderson and Robert Innes (University of
Manitoba Press, 2015).
