About the talk

In anticipation of our upcoming exhibition Denyse Thomasos: Odyssey, please join us for a virtual talk led by McMichael Chief Curator Sarah Milroy and guest speakers Gaëtane Verna, Director of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery and art historian Charmaine Nelson, Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Transatlantic Black Diasporic Art and Community Engagement at NSCAD University.

Denyse Thomasos (1964–2012) was a Trinidadian-Canadian artist whose epic paintings incorporate imagery from a range of sources including Caribbean textiles, historic slave ships, industrial shipyards, graveyards, villages and maximum security prisons. Denyse Thomasos: Odyssey celebrates the artist’s historic contribution to Canadian art, inviting a deeper understanding of the histories her paintings reflect.

Consider a donation to help keep our programming free. We truly appreciate your generosity in support of the art of Canada.
