Following the digitization of the Hamilton archive in 2001, local, national and international artists have been attracted to the uncanny photographs within this collection. Join artists KC Adams, Erika DeFreitas, Chris Dorosz and Paul Robles to hear about the role ghosts and intuition play in their art making in a panel moderated by Dr. Serena Keshavjee.

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.
