In this artist talk, CBU Artist in Residence Meagan Musseau will focus on the stages of creating a full body of artwork, from initial inspiration to exhibition, as well as the many pieces that go into a professional arts practice. The goal of this artist talk is to be a resource for anyone passionate about creating and sharing their artwork in community as well as on regional or national levels.

All are welcome.

Meagan Musseau is a L’nu woman, artist, and dancer from Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland) currently living in Sydney, Unama’kik. She nourishes an interdisciplinary arts practice by working with customary art forms and new media, such as textiles, basketry, beadwork, land-based performance, drawing, painting, video and installation. Meagan works with natural and synthetic materials as a way to interweave stories of adaptation, continuation, and resilience into artistic creation. For examples, see her website.

Her works explore themes of kinship, harvesting, connection to land, and matriarchal empowerment. Meagan creates contemporary art exhibitions that have been shown in galleries such as grunt gallery, Vancouver; Ociciwan Contemporary Art Centre, Edmonton; AKA artist-run centre, Saskatoon; and the Mi’kma’ki Artists’ Spotlight space at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax. Meagan’s artwork has also exhibited internationally at the North Atlantic Triennial which travelled to Portland Museum of Art, Maine, Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland, and the Bildmuseet Art Museum, Sweden. She participated in artist residencies at Indigenous Arts Intensive, University of British Columbia Okanagan campus (2022), Dreaming the Land (2021-22), Neighbourhood Dance Works (2019), Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (2017 & 2018), and the Indigenous Emerging Artist Program (2015-16).
