ARTIST TALK | 15 May, 7:00 p.m.

PLATFORM is pleased to present a talk by Chantel Mierau in conjunction with Mierau’s Gallery 2 exhibition, “Three Chores”.

For her talk, Chantel will discuss the works in "Three Chores” and talk about the relationship between the everyday and the unusual in her work. She will also share excerpts from her favourite “How-to” books.

PLATFORM's artist talks are free and open to the public.

Chantel Mierau is a Winnipeg-based artist originally from a farm near Saskatoon, SK/Treaty 6 Territory. She works in textiles, video, printmaking and performance which interrogate the Protestant work ethic of her Mennonite upbringing. She won’t invite you over because her house is messy. She holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba and is also the Finance & Administration Manager at aceartinc.
