Barbara Adler is an interdisciplinary artist and performer, whose practice incorporates text, music, event making and design. She lives in xwesam, colonially known as Roberts Creek, on the unceded territories of the shíshálh and Skwxwu7mesh Nations. Adler’s recent projects use intricate textile objects to reorganize work around relational time and seasonal cycles, drawing parallels between human and environmental exhaustion, and repair. She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies and a BA in Art and Cultural Studies, both from Simon Fraser University. Barbara is the owner of an old horse named ‘Monet’, who has taught her a few things, but mainly this: in mid-August, smoke free skies are a currency beyond any other.
