Students respond to Jaime Black's campus installation
This semester students had the opportunity to meet with and assist Jamie Black, the artist behind the REDress Project. Students helped with the preparation and installation of the dresses on the quad. When asked what she hoped students and others would “take away” from the REDress Project. Jamie responded that she hoped students would make work in response to her project to continue to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).
“The voices of Indigenous women and girls have fallen on deaf ears for too long. We are and have always been on the frontlines protecting our cultures and communities in the face of colonial violence. The presence of the REDresses fuels our fight for justice and amplifies our voices, we stand beside all Indigenous women and girls, their families and communities—we will be heard.” – Jaime Black
