The MacKenzie Art Gallery has announced the appointment of Felicia Gay to the position of Curatorial Fellow. Gay’s position is a cross-appointment with the University of Regina through a Mitacs funded fellowship and runs until April 2021.

Felicia Gay is of Swampy Cree and Scottish (Gordon Clan) heritage and brings a thoughtful lens of Indigenous worldviews and counter-narratives to contemporary curation. She was the founding Artistic Director of Red Shift Gallery in Saskatoon (alongside co-founder Joi Arcand) and was most recently the Curator at Wanuskewin Galleries. Her unique perspective was shaped by her early years living with her grandparents in Cumberland House in northern Saskatchewan, combined with her time in Saskatoon with her mother. This background has given her the ability to engage with works by a broad range of Indigenous artists with a crucial sensitivity.
