Recent hires at Vancouver, Regina, Winnipeg and Ontario art galleries have doubled the number of professional Indigenous curators of contemporary art in North Turtle Island. The critical discourse around Indigenous curation and creative sovereignty is contributing to the decolonization of many institutional spaces, while Indigenous-led curatorial projects, writing, and the pursuit of advanced degrees proliferate. This panel considers these issues through an innovative concentric Indigenous talking circle format, including local experts, students and national and international guests.
Speakers: David Garneau, Associate Professor, Visual Arts, University of Regina; Candice Hopkins, Independent Curator and Writer, IAIA Museum of Contemporart Native Arts; Janine Marchessault, Professor, School of Arts, Media, Performance and Design, York University
