Workshop: Epistemicide in the Western Art Canon
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.
