Please join us for a FREE talk by the artist Skeena Reece, organized by Kathy Slade & Yi Xin Tong.

Born in 1974 to Red Power movement activist Cleo Reece and internationally renowned carver Victor Reece, Skeena Reece is an Indigenous artist of Cree, Tsimshian, Gitksan, and Métis descent, whose multi-disciplinary practice includes performance art, "sacred clowning," songwriting, and video art. She studied at Northwest Community College and later at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design for media arts. She has been working in the arts since 1996 and currently is based out of Vancouver Island. She has also worked at Vancouver's grunt gallery as a curatorial practices intern, is a founder of the Native Youth Artists Collective, and was Director of the Indigenous Media Arts Group from 2005 to 2007.

Presented as part of the inaugural SCA Speakers Series of free talks over the spring semester at the SCA, organized by the school's Equity Committee. An objective of the series is to turn a necessary reflexive look back onto the school and the university at large, as well as across the arts more generally, in an effort to critically address enduring structures and patterns of privilege and disadvantage.

The School for the Contemporary Arts recognizes that we are on the unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Sḵwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
