The REDress Project is a work by artist Jaime Black which focuses on the issue of missing or murdered Aboriginal women across Canada. The art installation project is an aesthetic response to this critical national issue, through which the artist hopes to “draw attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Aboriginal women and to evoke a presence through the marking of absence” (excerpt from The REDress Project).
The artist Jaime Black will be giving a public talk on Monday, October 26, at the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre in Marshall d’Avery Hall, room 356, at 12 pm.
The dresses will be on display in the Harriet Irving Library Commons Cafe from Tuesday, October 27th until Friday, November 6th.
