Opening Reception Friday April 28, 7:00 pm, at the Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina.

In Lifting Stone, artist Roewan Crowe invites you to join her in a desert landscape for an intimate encounter with poetic text. Performing excerpts from her book Quivering Land, a rather queer Western that attempts to reckon with the legacies of violence and colonization, she creates a space of vulnerability and connection. The artist invokes Leslie Feinberg and their work on “stone butch” to articulate a queer femme notion of ‘stone,’ opening up an exploration of art encounters that contemplate non-physical touching and the act of being touched.

Artist Roewan Crowe was born under the big skies of Saskatchewan and raised in scofflaw Alberta. Crowe left the prairies to deepen her understanding of healing, art, and feminism and to complete graduate studies at OISE, U of Toronto. Her art and writing focus on queer feminist reclamation practices. She lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
