Converge Lecture Series: Elise Rasmussen

Visual artist, educator and Ryerson alumni, Elise Rasmussen will be joining us next Friday evening to talk to us all about what informs her work and artistic process. Rasmussen just recently showcased her piece, Fragments of an Imagined Place, (2016) locally as part of a joint exhibition (alongside fellow alumni, Camille Rojas and Avery Steel) at the Ryerson Artspace Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. Rasmussen’s work has been featured internationally in parts of North America (Toronto, Montreal, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles) as well as overseas in London. She works in several image-based mediums, such as photography, video and performance art. Rasmussen’s work is heavily based in research which often grants her the duel role of artist and theorist, as she challenges notions of dominant “truths” through her imagery. Rasmussen has also been presented with several grants and awards from the Canada Council for the arts, as well as acted as a juror for the CCA’s International Residencies program
in 2015.
