As part of Maria Hupfield’s exhibition, The One Who Keeps On Giving, which opens on September 25, and the performance in collaboration with Greenlandic Inuk artist Nive Nielsen (and her group, The Deer Children), Claire Astier has devised a series of discussions for the Canadian Cultural Centre, which she will be hosting, focussing on the following issues: What role(s) should cultural institutions play with regard to the representations of artists and their works from the perspective of decolonization? What strategies should they adopt to make the voices of artists from minority peoples heard in a globalized and fragmented world?

The discussions, meant to be an informal exchange of experiences and not in the lecture format, will bring together artists Maria Hupfield and Nive Nielsen, as well as Gaétane Verna, director of the Power Plant in Toronto and producer of Maria Hupfield’s exhibition, and Catherine Bédard, curator of the Canadian Cultural Centre exhibition programme. These discussions (15:30–17:30) will be followed by a guided visit of the exhibition at 17:30.

Claire Astier is a curator, playwright and art critic. She is particularly interested in performance and contemporary strategies with regard to the rewriting of history.
