COVID-19 Policy

Images Festival is committed to providing an accessible festival and continues to work to reduce barriers to participation at our events. This year, we are implementing a COVID-19 policy to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for all, and to prioritize the participation of people who are disability-identified, immunocompromised, or part of an otherwise vulnerable group.

The following guidelines will be in place: Self-Assessment: We ask that staff and participants screen themselves for COVID-19 before visiting the exhibition.

Eve Tagny is a Tiohti:àke/Montreal-based artist. Her practice considers gardens and disrupted landscapes as mutable sites of personal and collective memory inscribed with the dynamics of power, colonial histories, and their legacies. 

scores for failed structures of the private, a new body of work created while in residence at Ace Hotel Toronto, explores how concepts of private ownership and privacy are foundational to Western racialized notions of the civilized, modern human being. Through gestures and embodied expressions, Eve calls this underpinning into question: how do these fraught foundations predetermine our relationships to nature, labor, sustenance and intimacy in urbanized spaces?

Eve Tagny

Eve Tagny is a Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based artist. Her practice considers gardens and disrupted landscapes as mutable sites of personal and collective memory — inscribed in dynamics of power, colonial histories and their legacies. Weaving lens-based mediums, installation, text and performance, she explores spiritual and embodied expressions of grief and resiliency, in correlation with nature’s rhythms, cycles and materiality. Tagny has a BFA in Film Production from Concordia University and a Certificate in Journalism from University of Montreal. Recent exhibitions include Musée de Joliette, Momenta Biennale, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Centre Clark, Montreal; Cooper Cole, Gallery 44, and Franz Kaka, Toronto. She is the recipient of the Mfon grant (2018), the Plein Sud Bursary (2020) and has been shortlisted for the CAP Prize (2018), the Burtynsky Photobook Grant (2018) and the OAAG Award (2020).
