La Robe Rouge art installation by Heather Carroll

Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik, Uni-Campus Hof 8.3
Spitalgasse 2-4, 1090 Wien



01.12. 12:15 - 05.12. 12:00

The Centre for Canadian Studies at the University of Vienna is thrilled to welcome Canadian Inuit Scottish artist Heather Carroll with her project “La Robe Rouge: Hitting the Road. Educate, Enable, Empower. The Path towards Healing” to Vienna during the UN campaign 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.


La Robe Rouge is a travelling exhibition/installation that addresses domestic violence and more specifically speaks to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) issue in Canada and those indigenous children buried in unmarked graves, victims of the residential schools in Canada.


Heather Carroll’s La Robe Rouge will be on display in Hof 8.3 of Uni-Campus at University of Vienna, outside of the Department of English and American Studies, on weekdays between Dec. 01 – 05. All are welcome to attend a brief opening on Friday, Dec. 1, at 12:15, followed by artist talk titled “Finding the Patterns: Indigenous Women of Canada,” to be held in Room 5 of the Department of English and American Studies. During the time of the installation, Heather will also offer beading workshops for students.
