Description

Artist talk by Erika DeFreitas
Tuesday, February 7
1 – 2 pm
AA303, Arts & Administration Building, U of T Scarborough

Join us for a free, public talk by Erika DeFreitas as part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery, The Women's Centre, and Studio program in the Department of Arts, Culture & Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Erika DeFreitas is a Scarborough-based multidisciplinary conceptual artist. Placing an emphasis on process, gesture, and documentation, her work explores the influence of language, loss, and post-memory on the formation of identity, with the use of textile-based works, and performative actions, which are photographed. Her work has been exhibited in venues such as Project Row Houses (Houston), Gallery 44 (Toronto), Angell Gallery (Toronto), Pollock Gallery (Dallas), Platform Centre for Photographic & Digital Arts (Winnipeg) and the Art Gallery of Mississauga. Longlisted for the 2017 Sobey Art Award, a recipient of the Toronto Friends of Visual Arts’ 2016 Finalist Artist Prize and the 2016 John Hartman Award, DeFreitas holds a Master of Visual Studies from the University of Toronto. Her work can be seen at www.erikadefreitas.com.
