My Artistic Journey and How It Affected My Current Creative Practice
with Miriam Fabijan

This session will include a Q & A portion with participants given the chance to share their journey and what helped them to persevere in the face of adversity and creative disruption.
BIO & ARTIST STATEMENT
Miriam Fabijan (she/her) is a Canadian multimedia artist and independent curator. She is a graduate of the University of Calgary (BFA) and NSCAD University (MFA). Fabijan was also twice an Artist in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Her artwork has been exhibited extensively across Canada and in Europe and can be found in several public and private collections in Canada, the US and Europe, including the Canada Council Art Bank and the Walter Phillips Gallery for Contemporary Art. She is the recipient of numerous grants from the Canada Council, Calgary Arts Development, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Culture, La Ministère de la Culture du Québec and Slovenska Izseljenska Matica. Fabijan recently resumed her fulltime creative practice after twenty years away focused on raising her two daughters.
Fabijan’s artwork is autoethnographic. Her focused research and creative explorations are founded in her Slovenian cultural heritage, language, personal narratives, self-reflections, and social insights. Her search for a sense of place, lineage, voice, and identity are central to her work. Fabijan’s curatorial projects involve working with, and promoting the artwork of Indigenous, immigrant, emerging and marginalized artists, with a focus on art by and about women.
