Part of the M:ST Performative Art Festival, CSIF - The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers and Untitled Art Society are excited to present Jessie Short's Wake Up! at UAS's +15 Window at Arts Commons and at Casa in Lethbridge.
Artist Jessie Short, employs a self-reflexive and interdisciplinary practice to best explore constructs of Métis identity and contemporary visual culture. Produced as part of the 2015 ImagineNATIVE/CSIF Mentorship program, Wake Up! is an exploration of her identity as a Métis woman. The work addresses the absence of Métis people from larger conversations about Indigenous visual culture. For the film, Short transforms herself into the one of the only widely acknowledged icons and source of Métis identity accessible to her, Louis Riel. This transformation further suggests the disparate histories between Métis men and women.
Short will also be performing We've, a durational performance piece, on October 25th as part of the M:ST Festival: http://mstfestival.org/performance/jessieshort2/
