Creative Minds: Arctic/Amazon

Thursday, May 11 2023, 7-8:30pm

Join Lead Curator Gerald McMaster in conversation with artists Sonya Kelliher-Combs (Iñupiaq and Athabascan, United States) and Couzyn van Heuvelen (Inuk, Canada).

Arctic/Amazon: Networks of Global Indigeneity explores the ways in which Indigenous contemporary artists take on issues of climate change, globalized Indigeneity, and contact zones in and about the Arctic and the Amazon during a time of crisis. The featured artists have their origins in these places, and their works embody a politics of resistance, resurgence, and ways of knowing and being in relation to the lands that are the source of their knowledge and creativity.
