movie day: Making it in Saskatchewan

If you’ve got nothing better to do then you can watch me work and talk a bit about clay. (starts at 11:35 in the timeline.) Click on the image to get to the video.

MAKING IT IN SASKATCHEWAN provides a close personal look at how artists create vibrant, meaningful work throughout this province.

Twelve artists and creatives are featured in the six-episode series. Whether actors, singer-songwriters, writers, photographers, visual artists or designers, all are dedicated to Making It — creating original work, making a go of it in Saskatchewan, and reaching the pinnacle of success in their chosen pursuit.

Huge thanks to Robin Schlaht for his amazing work in this series and for putting up with me!


movie day: In The Studio with KC Adams

KC Adams is an Indigenous artist’s artist. With deep roots in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba, she has, for decades, been activating Indigenous communities in the arts and beyond. Adams’s ongoing photography series Cyborg Hybrids was a viral sensation before memes. But at the core, her work engages Indigenous and settler communities in complex conversations about how colonialism and race affect our relations. Perception, another buzz-worthy photo series from Adams first seen in bus shelters, on billboards and in public spaces across Winnipeg, will be published in book form by Portage & Main Press in May 2019.

In this video shot on location at the La Maison des artistes visuels francophones in Winnipeg, Adams reflects on her her journey as an artist, and her new work with clay pottery. —Lindsay Nixon, editor-at-large.
