Carrie Allison

Currently in residence

Carrie Allison is an Indigenous mixed-ancestor multidisciplinary visual artist born and raised on unceded and unsurrendered Coast Salish Territory (Vancouver, BC), with maternal roots in High Prairie, Alberta. Situated in K’jipuktuk (Halifax) since 2010, Allison’s practice responds to her maternal Cree and Métis ancestry, thinking through intergenerational cultural loss and acts of reclaiming, resilience, resistance, and activism, while also thinking through notions of stewarship, kinship and visiting. Allison’s practice is rooted in research and pedagogical discourses. She looks to Indigenous, mixed-race, antiracist, feminist and environmental theorists to critically examine the world around her. Her work seeks to reclaim, remember, recreate and celebrate her ancestry through visual discussions often utilizing beading, embroidery, handmade paper, watercolour, websites, QR codes, audio, and video.
