Mary Kavanagh is a professor and Board of Governors Research Chair in the Department of Art at the University of Lethbridge, where she has taught since 2000. For over twenty years, Kavanagh’s work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions across Canada and abroad. Artist residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Center for Land Use Interpretation, and the Canadian Forces Artists Program, have resulted in sustained examinations of weaponized landscapes, nuclear culture, and the material evidence of war and conflict. She is Principal Investigator of a SSHRC Insight Grant for her project, Atomic Tourist: Trinity, that explores nuclear anxiety in the 21st century with a focus on the site of the world’s first atomic bomb test in the desert of New Mexico. Kavanagh is currently documenting uranium extraction sites across Canada.
