2pm, Sunday, Studio 001

Facilitators: Gabby Loo and Steven Finch

Epistemicide is the colonial act of killing knowledges. It is an act which suppresses and erases languages, forms of creative expression, and claims a single truth.

This workshop is for art appreciators and practicing artists and explores the Western art canon and its links to cultural destruction. State Library of WA’s Battye Fellows, Gabby Loo and Steven Finch, give voice to the many forms of alienation and personal identity struggle that occur for People of Colour when confronted by Western mono-cultural fantasies.

This workshop is currently full. Please join the waitlist and we’ll be in touch if any spots open up.
