Meera Sethi

Meera Sethi is a Canadian contemporary artist whose practice encompasses a range of mediums to pose questions about the relationship between migration, diaspora, hybridity and belonging. Her work foregrounds contemporary histories on the edges of representation, especially queer, diasporic and post-colonial moments.

Meera's work is in the permanent collection of the Royal Ontario Museum and the Wedge Collection and has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Art Gallery of Mississuaga, L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival among national and international venues. She has been awarded multiple grants from the Toronto, Ontario and Canada arts councils. Her work has been featured in NBC, NPR, The Toronto Star, The Globe&Mail, The Fader, Vice, VOGUE India, CNN, MTV and numerous other print and online publications. She holds a BFA and an MA (Interdisciplinary Studies) from York University, Toronto. Meera lives and works in Toronto.

Meera will discuss past projects included Begum, a series of mixed media paintings that explores the notion of "excess" in Queer fashion and Upping the Aunty, a multidimensional project comprised of paintings, street fashion photograph, and colouring book for adults.
