Anne Riley is a multidisciplinary artist living as an uninvited Slavey Dene/German guest from Fort Nelson First Nation on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̍əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Sel̓íl̓witulh Nations. Her work explores different ways of being and becoming, touch and Indigeneity. Riley received her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012 and has exhibited across the United States and Canada. From 2018 to 2020, Riley collaborated with T’uy’tanat Cease Wyss on A Constellation of Remediation, a public art project commissioned by the City of Vancouver that consisted of Indigenous remediation gardens throughout the city. Riley and Wyss were long-listed for the 2021 Sobey Art Award. Since this project, Riley participated in the Drift: Art and Dark Matter residency and exhibition, creating works that consider the possibilities of making and being beyond the confines of western institutions and extractive processes.
