In a 1993 art exhibit at the University of Saskatchewan,
Christopher Lefler created an installation essentially outing
the Lieutenant Governor of that province.
As a result, Lefler’s show was closed, his artwork seized,
his scholarship revoked, and he was expelled.
Tainted is not, however, about ‘outing’.
It attempts instead to chart and comment upon
some of the reactions to Lefler’s controversial
and much maligned work.
Tainted attempts to raise the questions of power,
privilege, and privacy that have been foreclosed
in the aftermath of these events.
