Art installation supporting National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women


Nipissing University is hosting an art installation in support of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. 

The installation will be exhibited from November 28 - December 6 in Nipissing’s main foyer. It culminates in a discussion with the artists, Gerry McComb, Thaila Sarazin, and Pauline Sutherland, on Wednesday, December 6, from 3:30– 4:15 p.m. in the Nipissing Theatre (F213). The artist talk will be followed by a ceremony by Elder-in-Residence, Carol Guppy, and a candlelight vigil starting at 4:15 p.m. in the Nipissing foyer. All are welcome to attend.

The art installation intends to open conversation about social justice concerns the artists connect to the tragedy of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada. Composed of seven works, the installation centres on water activism, the renewal of Indigenous languages, and a return to culture for Indigenous peoples.

McComb and Sarazin are both 2017 graduates of Nipissing University’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Sutherland is a current student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Nipissing. 

This event is supported by the Office of Indigenous Initiatives and the Women’s Safety Grant to recognize and raise awareness in the campus community regarding the National Day of Remembrance and Action for Violence Against Women.
