Opening Plenary Speaker - Diana Thorneycroft

Winnipeg artist Diana Thorneycroft is internationally recognized for her darkly amusing and disturbing evocations of Canadian cultural icons and historic events in “Group of Seven Awkward Moments.” Her most recent work “A People’s History” moves beyond awkward to horrific and traumatic, documenting moments in Canadian history that are difficult to look at but must be seen. “In making this work I do not intend to mock or diminish the traumas that occurred. Rather, my intention is to consider what took place, why it took place, why it took place here, and reflect it back to all of us for whom it resonates. From this angle, perhaps we can begin to understand these events, and maybe learn something about ourselves that we may not like; that we need to address.”
