All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • All Day Zaagi’idwin: Silent, Unquestionable Act of Love, a multimedia installation by artist Leanna Marshall (Multi-Day Event)

    Leanna Marshall is a member of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. Her art practice focuses on the art of ancestral storytelling – creating an intersection where viewers can meet to understand the essence of relationships, connection/disconnection and loss. Through the making and documentation of seven jingle dresses, Marshall explores the stories that have shaped her perception of the complexities of her family history in the context of Canadian history. The social inequities, resistance and sadness told in these narratives serves as a springboard to examine the act of healing, compassion and forgiveness.

    When Competition Pushes You to the Dark Side: How Competition Triggers Applicant Faking

    Applicant faking during selection has been studied for dozens of years but remains a vexing issue for practitioners and researchers. Although we know that applicants can and do fake, extant research examining why they fake has largely been focused on the characteristics of the applicant and the selection methods, often ignoring contextual factors. For instance, there is little evidence about the role played by competition, despite its predominant place in both the selection process and organizational culture. In this talk, I will describe the theoretical foundations for positioning competition as a key antecedent of applicant faking. I will then present a series of studies demonstrating how individual-level competition can trigger faking in employment interviews, and how organization-level competition can trigger adaptive faking strategies when completing personality tests.
