About the curator

Christina Battle (Edmonton, Canada) has a bachelor of science with specialization in environmental biology from the University of Alberta, a certificate in film studies from Ryerson University, an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, and is currently working toward a PhD in art and visual culture at the University of Western Ontario. Her research and artistic work consider the parameters of disaster; looking to it as action, as more than mere event and instead as a framework operating within larger systems of power. Through this research she imagines how disaster could be utilized as a tactic for social change and as a tool for re-imagining how dominant systems might radically shift.
