Kegan McFadden


Recently returned to Winnipeg after graduate studies in Vancouver, Kegan McFadden is a cultural worker whose diverse practice is comprised of curating, publishing, writing and the use of found media in various ways to invoke questions of sentimentality. His two part site-specific project welcome back captures fictive and factual histories of people and activities at the University of Winnipeg that address diverse understandings of the place in question. welcome back is a multi-track audio walking guide with corresponding numerical markers placed around campus that situate the anecdotal histories invoked by the sound recordings. Show + Tell visitors will be invited to borrow a guide and hear the audio tracks in the gallery space. Alternately, people may choose to wander campus, find the markers and listen to the recordings in the actual locations where the events took place.
