Eighth annual Stonecroft Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture: “Maria Hupfield on Maria Hupfield”. Event in-person and online via Zoom livestream.

The Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) is proud to present Maria Hupfield for the Eighth Annual Stonecroft Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture on Thursday, November 2, at 6pm. The University of Ottawa is located on the unceded territories of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation, who are the traditional guardians of this land.   

This lecture series is made possible thanks to a significant gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, in support of contemporary art discourse. The annual Stonecroft Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture Series allows the University of Ottawa students and general public to discover prominent Canadian artists’ practices. 

A transdisciplinary artist, Maria Hupfield crosses boundaries at the intersection of performance art, design and sculpture. In her work, the art object is positioned as active belongings where sculptures become performers in a form of object choreography between artist, audience, and art gallery. She is engaged in an ongoing series of relations with community, places, ideas, and materials. An Urban off-reservation member of the Anishinaabek People belonging to Wasauksing First Nation in Ontario, Hupfield is deeply invested in embodied practice, Native Feminisms, and ethical collaborative process. Her art was included in the exhibition “Beat Nation”, as solo project “Nine Years Towards the Sun” at the Heard Museum, and “The One Who Keeps on Giving” at The Power Plant, which travelled nationally. Her work was also shown at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Galerie de l’UQAM, Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada, NONAM - Nordamerika Native Museum Zurich, National Museum of the American Indian, Museum of Arts and Design in New York, Abrons Arts Center, Center for Art - Research and Alliances (CARA), BRIC House gallery, The Bronx Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, SITE SANTA FE amongst others.
