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.

  • 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.

    This talk will serve as an introduction to Commodity Derivatives. We will begin by exploring the world of Commodity futures contracts, providing background on classical futures curve concepts and how they relate to spot markets. Next, we will examine how Commodity futures are referenced in hedging structures ranging from typical vanilla swaps to highly bespoke structured products. Finally, the role of Commodities in an investment portfolio is discussed along with typical methods used to gain Commodity exposure and potential investment alpha.
