    How we Haunt: Kathleen Ritter and Carol Sawyer in Conversation with Kimberly Phillips
    Jun 28, 2018
    07:00 PM - 09:00 PM
    Join Kimberly Phillips, the guest curator of 13 Ways to Summon Ghosts, as she converses with exhibiting artists Kathleen Ritter and Carol Sawyer about the strategies of “haunting” they each employ in their own artistic practices, through an attention to feminist theories, materiality, historical research, translation, illusion and loss. * Kathleen Ritter is an artist based in Paris since 2013, when she was an artist in residence at La Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Recent exhibitions have taken place at Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Open Studio and G Gallery (Toronto), Access Gallery (Vancouver), and Battat Contemporary (Montréal). In addition Ritter has organized exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Her writing on contemporary art has appeared in ESSE, Prefix Photo, and Fillip as well as in numerous catalogues. Carol Sawyer is a Vancouver-based artist, performer, and singer working primarily with photography, installation, video, and improvised music. Her project The Natalie Brettschneider Archive was exhibited in 2016 at Carleton University Art Gallery (Ottawa) and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and in 2017- 2018 at the Vancouver Art Gallery. In 2019 it will travel to the Windsor Art Gallery (Ontario), and a book is planned to accompany that exhibition. Along with several public art commissions in Vancouver, Sawyer has exhibited her work across Canada, including at Presentation House Gallery, Artspeak, Or Gallery, and Access Gallery (Vancouver); The New Gallery (Calgary), Floating gallery (Winnipeg) and Gallery 44 (Toronto). She holds a Diploma with Honours in Photography from Emily Carr College of Art and Design and an MFA from Simon Fraser University. She has taught courses in art studio, photography, and the history and theory of photography at ECUAD and SFU. She was awarded the Canada Council 2017 Duke and Duchess of York Prize in Photography.
