Talk (open to the public)
Saturday, October 14, 2017, 3-5 pm

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

The seminar and talk will tie into one another, beginning with a conversation on the notion of New Consciousness as presented by Gloria Anzaldua in the chapter entitled "La conciencia de la mestiza" in her book Borderlands/La Frontera (1987) - from noon to 2pm. In the afternoon talk (3-5pm), Claxton will unpack her own artistic practice/praxis and locate how it may exist within ideas of consciousness. The seminar is open to twenty participants and it involves an animated reading of selected texts as well as interactions with the guest. Texts will be given to the participants. Sign up to secure a spot.
