More specif­i­cally, what is it that drives artists who chose to make work on Sud­bury's wa­ter­ways? At this very mo­ment, Co­lette Lal­ib­erté is mak­ing an im­mer­sive wall­work at the GNO about the wa­ter­ways in Greater Sud­bury. And it's not the first time that Sud­bury's wa­ters are at the heart of an artis­tic pro­ject. In 2015, Emilio Por­tal and El­yse Por­tal cre­ated a sculp­tural in­stal­la­tion in­spired by Junction Creek and its place within the regional wa­ter­shed. More re­cently, the artists be­hind the Be­shaabi­iganan ex­hi­bi­tion used the im­agery of wa­ter­ways to evoke ques­tions of tra­di­tional ter­ri­tory, treaty and In­dige­nous lan­guage. Dur­ing a pub­lic dis­cus­sion at the GNO, Lal­ib­erté, the Por­tals and Deanna Nebe­nion­quit will share their thoughts on the role of wa­ter in their work and ex­plore the ques­tion of art's re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to wa­ter. Ad­mis­sion is free and ev­ery­one welcome. There will be snacks. The con­fer­ence, in­clud­ing a Q&A, should last about one hour.
