ISCEI Announces 2023 Artist-in-Residence Appointment

Published: 6 February 2023

In January 2023, the Indigenous Studies and Community Engagement Initiative (ISCEI) announced the appointment the 2023 ISCEI Artist-in-Residence, Tiffany Shaw.

Tiffany Shaw – 2023 Artist-in-Residence

Tiffany Shaw is a Métis architect, artist and curator based in Alberta. She holds a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) University, a Masters in Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and is currently working at Reimagine Architects. Shaw has exhibited widely including the Architecture Venice Biennale, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Pier 21, Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the Chicago Architecture Biennial. She has been the recipient of multiple public art commissions such as Edmonton's Indigenous Art Park and Winnipeg’s Markham Bus Station. Among her public art projects Tiffany has produced several notable transitory art works and is a core member of Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective.

Oscillating between digital and analogue methodologies Shaw’s work gathers notions of craft, memory and atmosphere. Her practice is often guided by communal interventions as a way to engage a lifted understanding of place. While born in Calgary and raised in Edmonton, Shaw’s Métis lineage derives from Fort McMurray via Fort McKay and the Red River.

As Tiffany is currently based in Alberta, she will be prioritizing virtual engagements until the dates of her McGill visits are confirmed. To book Tiffany for a class visit, talk, or other engagement, we ask that you please contact ISCEI Administrative Coordinator, Rudi Aker at rudi.aker [at] In your email, please include a description of the event or class, the date and time, and any other relevant information to be passed along to Tiffany. We will be taking appointments, in collaboration with Tiffany, until February 17, 2023.

Tiffany will also give a public talk as part of her role as Artist-in-Residence. The date and venue of this talk are yet to be determined.
