Leah Taylor (BFA’04) is the recipient of a 2018 fellowship at the Banff International Curatorial Institute.
Currently the associate curator at the University of Saskatchewan’s Kenderdine Art Gallery and College Art Galleries, Taylor will be curator-in-residence at the Banff Centre from Feb. 1 to June 29.
“I’m certainly looking forward to meeting and connecting with the national and international artists and curators that will be attending the centre's many programs,” says Taylor. “Not to mention the incredible backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.”
Taylor will be undertaking an original exhibition research project about contemporary artists interacting with text-based practices. Taylor says her work “will critically examine text and how society is continually objectified in our post-truth era through news headlines, inaccurate historical texts, advertising [and] social media,” with the intention of “highlighting the gaps and absences where words can fall between the cracks.”
Taylor has curated numerous projects including an exhibition of the work of Amalie Atkins entitled Wundermarchen that later toured to Ottawa, New York and Vienna. Other recent exhibitions include Tammi Campbell: Mono / Chromatic, Leah Rosenberg: Everyday, A Colour and (with Magdalyn Asimakis) Curtis Santiago’s solo exhibition Constructing Return.
Taylor is currently on the editorial committee and board for BlackFlash Magazine and on the Artist Advisory Board for Nuit Blanche Saskatoon.
Eden Friesen is a student intern in the College of Arts & Science communications and events office.
