Critical Dialogue: Rajni Perera with Rachel Grace Newman

Toronto-based multimedia artist Rajni Perera uses her work to “explore issues of hybridity, futurity, ancestor-ship, immigration identity/cultures, monsters, and dream worlds.” Her exhibition, Beyond the Words of Earth, currently on view at Temple Contemporary through March 3, invites viewers into the commemoration of a future where borders, imperialist capitalism and ecological collapse have birthed the survival of Travellers – a humanoid species whose multi-ancestral technologies have allowed them to recreate planetary and interplanetary relations. She will discuss her practice with Assistant Professor of Art History Rachel Grace Newman, PhD.
