Treva Michelle Legassie is currently pursuing a research-creation PhD candidate at Concordia University, where she was named the J.W. McConnell Memorial Doctoral Fellow. Examining contemporary curatorial practices for environmental and site-specific art, her dissertation builds on current work calling for a new ethics of care bound to transversal and collaborative relationships between artist and curator, human and nonhuman, object and artist. Legassie is the founder and director of the Curatorial Collective at Milieux Concordia, Assistant Director of the Speculative Life Cluster, and a researcher in the Ethnography Lab and at AbTeC (Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace). She was curator of the exhibition Femynynytees (2018) at AVE, Montreal, assistant curator to Dr. Matt Soar for Tel Quel/As Is (2017) and co-ordinator for Cheryl Sim’s exhibition YMX: Land and Loss after Mirabel (2017) at POPOP Gallery, Montreal. She has published her writing in Technoetic Arts: A Journal of Speculative Research, PUBLIC Journal, De Gruyter Open Cultural Studies, ALTERNATIVE: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples, The Senses and Society, and has presented her research internationally at ISEA and RE:TRACE 7th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art. Recent research-creation projects include; Six Tales of Peace (and War) an audio guide for the Pavilion for Peace at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, which she co-wrote and co-produced, and a sculptural work titled Conservation Piece for Catastrophe which was shown at Concordia University’s Media Gallery in 2017. She has held a research fellowship at the National Academy of the Sciences in Washington, DC, and is currently a part-time faculty member of the Communication Studies department at Concordia University.
