Glen Lowry

GLEN LOWRY’S work investigates new forms of critical and creative practice, most often from the perspective of collaborative investigation. His most recent research project, Trading Routes: Grease Trails, Oil Futures (tradingroutes. ca) with artist Ruth Beer and others, is concerned with spatial justice and the problematic mapping of proposed oil pipelines linking Alberta’s oil fields to British Columbia’s coast on to ancestral indigenous trading routes, Oolichan or Grease Trails. Lowry is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Culture and Community and Chair of the Research Ethics Board at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
