  • Memorial display and Artwork Talk for National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

    December 3rd, 2018

    Join UWSA Women Trans Spectrum Centre and Gallery 1C03 for a memorial display and artwork talk for National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
    Monday, December 3, 2018
    Display: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
    Talk: 11:00 am
    Riddell Hall Atrium, University of Winnipeg

    On December 6, 1989, 14 women were killed at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in a brutal act of misogyny. Soon after, artist, writer and activist Lin Gibson created “Murdered by Misogyny: Forever”, a multi-site installation of 14 plaques that were displayed across Winnipeg — each prominently stating the name of one of the women killed — to memorialize these women and to draw attention to gender-based violence. One of the 14 plaques, honouring Nathalie Croteau, was acquired jointly by the University of Winnipeg Students Association ((UWSA) and the University of Winnipeg. This plaque has been displayed on the west wall of Gallery 1C03 since 1990.

    This year, on December 3, the UWSA’s Women-Trans Spectrum Centre and Gallery 1C03 are partnering to present a memorial event in conjunction with the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women. WTSC will present a display honouring these 14 women in front of Riddell Hall from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm and Gallery 1C03’s Curatorial Intern Breanna Waterman will present a brief talk about Lin Gibson’s installation “Murdered by Misogyny: Forever” at 11:00 am. All are welcome to attend.

    For further information, please contact Gallery 1C03 Director/Curator Jennifer Gibson at or the UWSA Women-Trans Spectrum Centre at
