Convening Indigenous Voices Forum Part 2
Join Elisa Harkins, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Marianne Nicolson, Tanis S’eiltin, and curator Wendy Red Star for a discussion of the exhibition, "Our Side."
As indigenous voices are increasingly sought in biennials, residencies, and exhibitions, cultural institutions are faced with the challenge of accurate and meaningful engagement. This forum is a celebration of the contemporary artists in both exhibitions, an examination of the portrayal of indigenous cultures in the international art world, and a reimagining of institutional practices and spaces through which indigenous artistic practices should be addressed today. Inspired by Red Star’s artist statement, the forum seeks to “redefine archival and historical norms through the lens of new historical, social, and cultural dynamics, both within and outside of contemporary indigenous realities.”
These conversations will be collected and into an anthology published by MAM in 2018. This forum and publication are generously supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
First Friday with Elisa Harkins, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Marianne Nicolson, Tanis S’eiltin, and curator Wendy Red Star: December 1, 5-8 PM, Gallery Talk at 7 PM
