Artist Talk: Anne J. Steves

WHEN: Weds, March 8 at 7 p.m.

WHERE: Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre, ACAD

Anne J. Steves is a visual artist working at the intersection of art/craft through textiles and thread based media. Her work examines the narratives of place and the ways in which craft aesthetics can draw out connections between ourselves and the spaces (both constructed and natural) in which we dwell. Steves’ work is often instigated by specific sites during artist residencies and independent travel, allowing for interaction with new conditions, communities and materials.

So far these have included a year in a Ranger Station, a collaborative canoe journey down the Rideau Canal, an exploration of string figure making in Victoria and a study of traditional wool blankets in Wales.

This talk is presented in partnership with Contextural Fibre Arts Cooperative.
