Additional Information

Logan MacDonald: vieedisk meeman monasthus, datyuns / I like to shake hands, not kill

Logan MacDonald’s recent work explores how disability can affect or change the ways we gain access to knowledge. In particular, MacDonald is engaged in thinking about Indigenous knowledge and legacies of cultural production. For this exhibition, MacDonald facilitated open-ended engagements with students from Winston Knoll’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing program to co-create the interdisciplinary artworks in his exhibition. Turning Central Gallery and the classroom into artistic learning environments, MacDonald prompted participants to share experiences and learn from each other through a creative lens. The exhibition thematically illustrates participants’ individual experiences and their connections made with one another, overcoming communication barriers and making space for shared knowledge and discoveries.

Born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Logan MacDonald is a Canadian artist, curator, and educator and activist. He is of European and Mi’kmaq ancestry (connected to Elmastukwek, Ktaqamkuk) and he identifies with both his settler and Indigenous roots. MacDonald’s artwork has been exhibited across North America and he is an Assistant Professor in Studio Arts at the University of Waterloo. In 2019, he was long listed for the prestigious Sobey Art Award.
