Public Talk: Shelley Niro

OCAD University’s Faculty of Art presents: ART CREATES CHANGE The Kym Pruesse Speaker Series 

Multi-media artist, Shelley Niro, while working with photography, painting, beadwork and film, is conscious of the impact post-colonial mediums have had on Indigenous people.  Like many artists from different Native communities, she works relentlessly presenting people in realistic and explorative portrayals. Shelley is a member of the Six Nations Reserve, the inaugural recipient of the Aboriginal Arts Award and recently received the Governor General’s Award For The Arts from the Canada Council.
