611 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 1E1
Free, everyone is welcome.

Chantel Mierau will focus on the themes of “time spent”, “time wasted” and “time measured” in craft-based performance art. By examining works by artists working in this vein, Mierau will make the case for craft (especially needlework) as time-based media. The lecture will also explore the economics of knitting, craft-based performance’s awkward relationship with the de-materialization of the art object, and the phrase “too much time on their hands.”

Chantel Mierau works in textiles, video and performance. Since graduating with a BFA from the University of Manitoba in 2011, she has exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently as part of the Manitoba Craft Council’s exhibit Neurocraft in Winnipeg and Montreal. She is a graduate of MAWA’s 2016/17 Foundation Mentorship Program and is the Finance and Administration Manager at aceartinc.
