International artists Shannon Taggart (USA) and Estelle Chaigne (France) have based their artistic oeuvres on photographing ghosts. With moderator Sarah Hodges-Kolisnyk, they will discuss how and why ghosts are so compelling, and how they capture these immaterial beings on digital and analog film.

This event is part of the The Undead Archive

This fall, MAWA is partnering with arts and academic organizations in Winnipeg to produce a deep dive into the intersections of visual arts and the supernatural, inspired by Winnipeg’s history of spiritualist photography. Activities include a photography workshop with former MAWA Artist in Residence Estelle Chaigne (France), a “MAWA Presents” online lecture with Dr. Grace Williams (UK), and the Wendy Wersch Memorial Lecture with long-time MAWA friend Erika DeFreitas. ASL is available for all events upon request.
