WhiteFeather has been selected to present her video work as part of the digital visual art show, The Body Electric, presented at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada International Conference on Resident Education (ICRE) in Quebec City, QC, October 19-21, 2017. The Body Electric has also received support from Associated Medical Services (AMS), and in partnership with the Royal College, will also be screened at the AMS Phoenix Invitational Conference, November 16 and 17, 2017, in Toronto.

The Body Electric understands art as an intervention that explores, disrupts, deepens and reimagines medicine. It offers a set of practices for meaning-making, looking, and reflecting through which we can stand in new relations with the subjects and objects of health care. Initially launched during the 2014 International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE), The Body Electric digital art exhibit annually showcases an inspiring selection of visual art, in a range of media, including photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and video.”
