Thesis Title: Occupy Art in Atlantic Canada
For my PhD research I intend to study artworks produced by members of the Occupy Wall Street movement in three Atlantic Canadian cities (St. John's, NL; Fredericton, NB; Halifax, NS). My aim is to understand if and how visual art is used by activists as both a tool of communication and a means of expressing values, emotions, and perspectives.
