Cathy Busby is an Adjunct Professor of Visual Art in the UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory. Based in Halifax, she has been exhibiting her work internationally over the past twenty years. Busby grew up in the suburbs of Toronto until 1974 when she had the opportunity to attend the Carcross Community Education Centre in the Yukon. This was an alternative school housed in the former Chooutla Indian Residential School and attended by both Settler and Indigenous students. Her Grade 11 year at Carcross was a turning point for Busby, marking the beginning of her development as an artist concerned with social justice. Busby’s work WE ARE SORRY 2013 is currently on view at the Walter C. Koerner Library as part of the Witnesses exhibition.
All are welcome. Admission is free.
