Artist in Residence Talk: Wendy Wischer

  • Thursday, June 25, 2015
  • 7:00pm – 8:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

During her residency, Wendy Wischer plans to continue her explorations of natural landscapes and urban centres coexisting in close proximity. This includes what is lost, what is gained and the need for preservation of the physical environmental spaces, the history of those environments and the mythologies associated with both. Wischer will be working in photography, video and sound, documenting sites and creating onsite performances and installations for the camera lens. She will also be creating tests for larger video installations.

Wendy was selected for the MAWA residency by former MAWA guest curators Ombretta Agró Andruff and Tami Katz-Freiman.

Presented in partnership with Art Centre/South Florida.
