Slade is an artist based in Vancouver, Canada, who works across disciplines in a variety of media including textiles, sculpture, sound, performance, film, video, print, and publication. Through her practice, Slade points to moments and events in literature, art history, and popular culture from which to reimagine particular temporalities and existing texts, to create looping structures, and to produce remakes that play on repetition and the doublet of original and copy.
Slade was recently commissioned by the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery at the University of British Columbia to create a textile multiple to address depictions of the woman reader as an artistic genre. This resulted in a series of jacquard woven blankets that will be presented in the exhibition Beginning with the Seventies: GLUT on view at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery from January to April 2018. A large painted version of her poster work I WANT IT ALL I WANT IT NOW will be exhibited at the Walter C. Koerner Library at UBC alongside GLUT. In July of 2018 her film Tugboat (2007) was included in the exhibition It’s Never Too Late to Speculate as part of the series Kunst im Fluc at the Fluc in Vienna.
