Tianna Barton is a transdisciplinary maker and facilitator hailing from Cortes Island. A graduate of Emily Carr University of Art + Design, she uses performance art, short film, and sculpture as well as her social practice to prompt questions and critical conversation while her tongue-in-cheek themes poke fun at social norms. Her playful works investigate gender roles and feminism, power structures, environmental activism, and other socio-political situations. Tianna’s work has been featured by CBC, Radio-Canada and SAD Mag; she was a 2017 Salt Spring National Art Prize finalist and in 2019 received the John C. Kerr Chancellor Emeritus Award for Excellence in Visual Arts for her graduating year.
