Artist Talk with Emily Critch

Emily Critch

Emily Critch is an artist, curator, and writer of Mi’kmaq and settler ancestry from Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk Territory (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). She received her BFA in Visual Arts from Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland (2018) and has just begun her MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice with OCAD University remotely this fall. Emily has exhibited her work with Grenfell Art Gallery, Eastern Edge Gallery, The Rooms, the Hafnarfjörður Centre of Culture and Fine Art (Iceland), and she is the 2020-2021 Don Wright Scholar at St. Michael’s Printshop. Print media and textiles are intimate and labour intensive processes she uses to transform and transfer L’nu stories. The foundation of her artistic and curatorial practice is to consider the political and creative ways Indigenous People’s care for their traditions, kinships, and sovereignties through different modes of storytelling and connecting with land.
