In collaboration with FUSE, November’s salon will feature readings from the magazine and its library of review materials, focusing on those relating to FUSE’s
States of Postcoloniality series. Through group reading and discussion,
we will consider the current “Occupy” movements in relation to colonial
dynamics in Canada.

 

FUSE is one of Canada’s foremost critical
periodicals on art and culture. With a focus on visual and media art,
and a strong emphasis on the diverse communities that make up the
contemporary Canadian art world, FUSE examines emerging issues and debates from the perspectives of politically engaged cultural producers.

 

Gina Badger is an artist and writer working in the
expanded field of sculpture and installation. Working iteratively and
across media, her work is entangled in the wondrously post-natural and
its environmental histories, and her favored research methods include
listening, walking, eating and drinking. She has presented work
internationally at celebrated venues, notably The Kitchen (NYC); LACMA
(Los Angeles); Issue Project Room (NYC); and the London School of
Economics and Political Science, and has published in Scapegoat JournalPublic Journal, and Byproduct: On the Excess of Embedded Art Practices (YYZ). Currently
working between Toronto, Montreal, and various locations south of the
49th parallel, Badger holds an M.S. in Visual Studies from MIT. A
collaborator at heart, Gina is a member of the Montreal-based Artivistic
Collective, and is currently the editorial director of FUSE.
