Over the last 20 years her dance work and short films have been shown across Canada and internationally. Goodwin is one half of the art band MORTIFIED with Camilla Singh which is a band that uses drum kits, tap dancing, and cheerleading as its instruments. She has written for the Journal for Curatorial Studies and The Dance Current. She lives in Toronto with her husband and their two sons.

I am just finishing my first of two years of a Master of Visual Studies – Curatorial Studies program at the University of Toronto. I am the first dance artist in this program. I am especially excited about live and performing art though I am also interested in the performative and the expansive ideas of the choreographic in space, objects, time and exhibitions. I have worked as a programmer, producer and dance artist for over 20 years and went into this program to expand and develop my knowledge and skills. I would love to share some of what I have been learning, thinking and talking about.

We will read and discuss short texts that revolve around exhibition and curatorial practice and history with a focus on the intersections of performance, dance and visual art.

We will embark on a local field trip to a gallery, have a guest curator come in to chat with us and do a studio visit with a local artist, all relating to key concerns from texts and talks. We will save a bit of time for personal and group brainstorming, creative writing and sharing ideas with peer feedback if one so chooses.
