cheyanne turions is an independent, Toronto-based curator and writer who holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of British Columbia. From the farmlands of Treaty 8, she is of settler and Indigenous ancestry. Her work approaches the space of exhibition as alive—the gallery is a space of dialogue where artists, curators and publics can reflect on and experiment with ways of seeing and being in relation. Most recently she curated Talking Back, Otherwise, a year-long exhibition at the Jackman Humanities Institute and co-edited C Magazine's poetry issue with Danielle St-Amour and Kari Cwynar. She is the director of No Reading After the Internet (Toronto).
This Artist talk is part of "Art Now!", a course offered by the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. The course focuses on current contemporary art production, both locally, nationally and internationally. All Artist Talks are FREE and OPEN to the Public!
