I am excited to present my work for the first time in Canada as part of the Gendered Threads of Globalization Conference oganized by Melia Belli-Bose at University of Victoria.  I will be creating a performance as well as lecturing in undergraduate and graduate classrooms. The event has been postponed and is currently planned for November 2021.  Stay tuned for details.  The public lecture/performance will be at the Legacy Gallery, Downtown, 630 Yates St, Victoria, B.C., Canada.

ShuiShuta (Needle & Thread):  an interactive performance/installation

Bangladeshi-American feminist artist Monica Jahan Bose creates a performance with hand-woven saris from Bangladesh, exploring questions of labor, gender & industry, including the inequitable gender impacts of the garment industry and climate change.  Bose uses the hand-woven cotton sari as a symbol for women’s bodies and the cycle of life on our planet.  She invites viewers to join the performance by sewing with her and writing or drawing personal climate pledges on a sari. The sari will later be worn as a garment by a coastal woman in Bangladesh.  The performance is woman-led, but allies of all genders may join.
