Studio Visit with Evan Ducharme
via @aceartinc on Instagram and Facebook, as well as digitialantimatterantimanifesto.ca

Evan situates us on the land on which they live (CW: Residential schools), takes us through their home studio, and talks about their practice which challenges Catholic notions of bodily shame.

Evan Ducharme is Metis with ancestral ties to the Cree, Ojibwe, and Saulteaux Peoples from the community of St. Ambroise, Manitoba (Treaty 1 Territory). His multidisciplinary work examines Metis history and cultural iconography in dialogue with Indigenous perspectives on gender, queerness, and environmental responsibility. His work applies ancestral and contemporary Metis knowledge to affirm a modern representation of Indigenous peoples within the fashion medium. Evan is a principal dancer with Compaigni V’ni Dansi and founding member of the Acuhko Simowuk Collective. His work has been featured in Discorder Magazine, National Geographic, FASHION Magazine, and Vogue.com. Ducharme currently lives and creates with gratitude on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, and Squamish Peoples (Vancouver, BC, Canada).

This event is happening as part of the programming intervention, Digital Anti-Matter Anti-Manifesto, curated by gijiit.

gijiit is a curatorial collective consisting of members Jas M. Morgan and Adrienne Huard, based in Tkaronto and Miiskwaagamiwiziibiing. The collective concentrates on community-engaged Indigenous art dealing with themes of gender, sex, and sexuality.
