Michéle Pearson Clarke: Parade Of Champions
June 5 – 28, 2015
Student Gallery, The Image Centre (formerly Ryerson Image Centre)
Drawing on the artist’s experience of grieving her own mother’s death, Parade of Champions documents the grief experiences of three black queer individuals whose mothers have also recently died. Employing still video portraits and audio interviews, this immersive three-channel installation invites viewers to bear witness to this black queer grief.
