The Sisters’ Fart Corner presents a body of drawings and comics that explicitly explores Creagen’s mixed-race Japanese-Canadian heritage and investigates areas of representation (contemporary/historical art, and medical) connected to women’s bodies in sex and sexual health.
Born in Nova Scotia, Sarah Mihara Creagen is a white passing mixed-race queer artist currently based between Brooklyn and Toronto. She received her MFA from Hunter College in 2018. Creagen was the recipient of the Kossak Travel Grant which enabled her and her younger sister to travel to Japan in 2018. They retraced family roots, looked at art and ate their way across the country. Creagen has exhibited work in Toronto and New York. She has had recent solo exhibitions at SPRING/BREAK Art Show and Hercules Gallery in New York, and is a 2018/2019 Queer | Art Fellow working with Neil Goldberg.
Creagen's work was also presented in collaboration with Art POP, Everything that happens, happens in the verbs, at Studio Rialto, Sept 25-29, 2019.
Sarah would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of a fall 2019 Cottage Studio Residency at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant where she was able to create works for The Sisters' Fart Corner.
