The Brandon University Department of Visual & Aboriginal Art presents a public talk by Dayna Danger.

Dayna Danger is a 2Spirit/Queer, Métis/Saulteaux/Polish visual artist raised in so-called Winnipeg, Manitoba. Using photography, sculpture, performance and video, her practice questions the line between empowerment and objectification by claiming space with her larger-than-life scale work.

Danger’s current use of BDSM and beading leather fetish masks explores the complicated dynamics of sexuality, gender, and power in a consensual and feminist manner. Danger is currently based in Tio’tia:ke.

Danger holds a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from Concordia University. She has exhibited her work in Santa Fe, N.M., Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Peterborough, Ont., North Bay, Ont., Vancouver, Edmonton and Banff. Danger currently serves as a board member for the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective.
