Roles at grunt

Curator (after 2019)


Whess Harman is Carrier Wit’at, a nation amalgamated by the federal government under the Lake Babine Nation. They graduated from the Emily Carr University’s BFA program in 2014 and are currently living and working on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh as the curator at grunt gallery. Their multidisciplinary practice includes beading, illustration, text, poetry, and curation. As a mixed-race, transgender artist they work to find their way through a tasty plethora of some kind of undiagnosed attention deficit disorder, colonial bullshit, and queer melancholy. To the best of their patience, they do this with humour and a carefully mediated cynicism that the galleries go hog wild for.
