The MacKenzie Art Gallery hosts it’s first Minecraft Digital Artist in Residency (DAiR)
, in partnership with Ender Gallery, a studio and exhibition space within the video game Minecraft, curated by Sarah Friend, Cat Bluemke, and Jonathan Carroll. After an international public call for submissions, four artists have been selected to develop projects for the server over the next ten months. Our first resident is local Regina artist Cat Haines, whose residency will run from March to April, with an exhibition period from May to June.
On International Trans Day of Visibility (Wednesday, March 31), join Cat Haines and the curators of the exhibition for a livestreamed open studio event where she will discuss her work. The event will be livestreamed to the MacKenzie’s social media, including its Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch accounts.
Through a large-scale installation and performance series on the server, Cat Haines will explore the possibility of queer and trans intimacies in digital spaces. Constructing digital representations of her own body, Haines will create an ironic and playful transfeminist intervention into the often cissexist feminist art canon.
