Of Syrian Kurdish origins, Khadija Baker is a multidisciplinary artist who creates installations that combine video, textile and sound. Her work explores social and political themes related to persecution, exile and memory. Baker immigrated to Canada in 2001 and completed an MFA in Open Media at Concordia University. She won several awards, namely from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres of Quebec. Her work has been shown in Montreal, Toronto, New York, London, Berlin, Marseille, Beirut, Damascus and at the Biennale of Sydney in 2012.

Having traveled across Canada thirty times by car, thumb, motorcycle, bus, train, or plane, Janet Lumb delights in the discovery of creation and expression within the boundaries and challenges of Canada’s geography. Her fascination is e-connecting artists, communities and people in a real way.
