In partnership with Cathedral Village Arts Festival, artist Liz Ikiriko takes us on a walk-through of the Cathedral Village area in Regina, Saskatchewan, reminiscing on the shops and spaces that made an impact that she explored as a kid growing up in the neighbourhood.
Liz Ikiriko is a Tkaronto/Toronto-based, prairie-born, Nigerian Canadian artist and curator. Her work as an educator, maker and mother inform her practice which is focused on African and diasporic narratives. She is committed to the creation of embodied experiences that utilize accessible platforms to share moments of vulnerability and care for all of us on the margins. She holds an MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice from OCAD University (2019).
Her work has been exhibited nationally and her writing has appeared in Public Journal, MICE Magazine, C Magazine and Akimbo. Presently she is curating, Is Love A Synonym for Abolition? (2021), on view at Gallery 44 during the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. She teaches photography at Ryerson University and is Assistant Curator at the Art Gallery of York University.
