Hunt to speak on artwork, war at Cinematheque

  • Print

Famous for her hot pink crocheted land mines, multimedia artist Barb Hunt has been using craft-based sculptures to examine the links between women, nature and warfare for nearly 30 years.

The University of Manitoba alumna will be in Winnipeg to give a talk entitled We are all of us made by war… on Nov. 3 at Cinematheque. She will discuss her recent artwork, which explores the devastation of armed conflict, and strategies for survival as a feminist artist and educator. The lecture begins at 2 p.m. and admission is free.

Hunt appears as part of The Wendy Wersch Lecture Series, an annual event presented in memory of Winnipeg artist Wendy Wersch. The lectures focus on women in the arts as role models for innovative cultural investigation while building awareness of feminist art criticism, activism and practice. Organized by Wendy Wersch Memorial Committee, the lecture is supported by Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA), and The Wendy Wersch Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation.
