Thirza Cuthand: New and Retrospective

For over 20 years Cuthand has been producing videos that take up issues of sexuality, madness, youth, love, and race. Cuthand’s innovative and prolific DIY practice blends an incomparable wit with incisive critique while tackling issues at the intersection of queerness, Indigeneity, and living in Canada’s settler colonial society. Artist In Residence Thirza Cuthand shares a program of her earlier and most recent films that will leave you alternatively howling with laughter and questioning how you think about and live in this world.
