MFASASA would like to acknowledge that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke | Mooniyang | Montréal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples.
Territorial acknowledgements are the foundation for our events and our art practices. So we take the time to consider where we have lived, who we have relationships to, where our resources come from, what our art materials are made from, what knowledge we have—where it comes from—and how it’s valued.
We would like to give special thanks to our Exhibition Coordinator Alli Melanson, our Publication Designer Andrew Kerr, our Website Designer Stephen McLeod, and all of our fantastic MFASASA volunteer s.
Thank you Karin Zuppiger for being delightful and answering all of our questions, and to Maureen Kennedy for your administrative skills and support. Thank you to all of the Studio Arts staff, administrators, and faculty who support us and teach us in so many ways.
We would like to acknowledge our funders, who have made it possible for us to be ambitious for this year’s Maureen VI.
