Deanna Bowen is a descendant of the Black Prairie pioneers of Amber Valley and Campsie, Alberta. She uses her family history as a central pivot in her auto-ethnographic interdisciplinary works. Her broader artistic practice examines historical writing and the ways in which artistic and technological advancements impact individual and collective authorship. She has received several awards including a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship. Bowen will discuss Vincent Meessen’s exhibition Blues Klair.
