Fallon Simard is an Anishinaabe-Metis artist, educator and policy writer. Through, memes, workshops and videos, he layers text and images, transposing popular and informal methods of public address to carry pointed political critique. His artwork and pedagogical practice captures how racism and colonialism intercede to form the bases of capitalism’s devastating attempts at cultural erasure and genocide, but also reveal its ultimate failure to control the terms of Indigeneity as present and lived. Simard graduated from OCAD University through the interdisciplinary Masters of Art, Media and Design program. He has exhibited at the Art Gallery of Burlington, curated for the Queer Art Festival in Toronto, written policy for the Yellowhead Institute at Ryseron University and participated in Plug In ICA’s Summer Institute.
