About the talk

Join us for a virtual curatorial talk led by McMichael Chief Curator Sarah Milroy as part of the upcoming special exhibition Denyse Thomasos: Odyssey. Milroy will be joined in discussion by Gaëtane Verna, Director of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto and visual artist June Clark as they examine, recontextualize and celebrate Trinidadian-Canadian artist Denyse Thomasos’ artistic practice, career, and historic contribution to BIPOC voices in Canadian art.

This curatorial discussion is the first in a series of talks regarding the artistic legacy of Denyse Thomasos and presented in recognition of Black History Month.
