Lindsay Sorell

Lindsay Sorell (she/her) is an artist and MA student of both Métis (from kistapinânihk) and mixed European descent learning in the department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies at University of Alberta, grateful to be living in and a pupil of amiskwaciwâskahikan. Her focus of research is on coalition-building between diverse people groups through artmaking – how can we use art to generate learning and listening spaces that radically empower Indigenous sovereignty and facilitate decolonization in our present? Lindsay served as the founding editor of Luma Quarterly journal for Western Canadian media art and film, has written for Canadian Art, Akimbo, and the Independent Media Arts Alliance’s Perspectives, and has exhibited her paintings, performances, and media art in various spaces such as Contemporary Calgary, Untitled Art Society, and Illingworth Kerr Gallery.
