Humber Galleries welcomes Alissa Firth-Eagland as Curator. Over the coming months she will be learning about and engaging with all areas of Canada’s largest College.

Alissa has held positions such as Project Manager, Isuma Distribution International (Igloolik, NU/Montréal, PQ); Curator, Musagetes (Guelph, ON); and Director/Curator, Western Front Media Arts (Vancouver, BC). Notably, she has curated projects in Italy, Croatia, Finland, Norway, France, and across Canada. Her publishing practice was recognized with a Chalmers Art Fellowship and her editorial work has guided seven publications on art and society. Her formal educational background in Integrated Media and Curatorial Practice includes credentials from OCAD University; The Banff Centre; and École du Magasin in Grenoble, France.

Alissa brings extensive experience as a curator, writer, and arts administrator who deeply values the sharing and decentralization of culture through educational practices. She has extensive experience in developing local and international art projects that span community development, multimedia, equity practices, cultural mediation, critical writing, publishing, and alternative forms of learning.

Humber Galleries are situated on the traditional territories of the Ojibwe Anishinabe people in Adobigok, meaning “Place of the Alders” in the Ojibwe language. This region encompasses several present day First Nation communities including families from the Otter, Turtle, and Amik (Beaver) clans.

The Galleries are a pair of engagement points for Humber students, faculty, community members, and neighbours to share and apply skills through art. Our two spaces are sites of social, political, educational, philosophical, and quantitative inquiry: North Space (North Campus) and L Space (Lakeshore Campus). Humber Galleries also boasts a purposefully acquired Collection of Canadian contemporary artworks representing all disciplines and a diverse range of lived experiences.

We would like to graciously extend our deep thanks to outgoing Curator Ashley Watson, who has developed these galleries with the strong support of Humber Institute of Learning and Applied Technology: first L Space (established in 2012) and then North Space (established in 2015).
