The Visual Arts Lecture Series presents talks by leading Canadian and international artists, curators, and academics.

Join Tejal Shah, faculty for the program, Ecologies of Precarious Abundance: Queer Life and Natures, for this talk.

Tejal Shah (they/them, India) considers themselves as some kind of an artist working on some kind of nature. They are deeply invested in relationality, love, care and healing, in ways that honours difference and is sensitive to the flows of power, privilege and disadvantage along complex intersectional lines. Amongst others, Shah’s worldview is informed by nondual Buddhist philosophy and practice, queer-feminism and eco-poetics. Their works have shown widely at museums, galleries and film festivals including Documenta 13, Kassel; Kochi-Muziris Biennale; Tate Modern, London; and Centre Pompidou, Paris.

This program is generously supported by the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Outstanding Artist program.
