At The Edge Of Canada: Indigenous Research

Today our guest is Métis Art His­to­ry schol­ar Dr. Julie Nagam, the Chair of Indige­nous Art in North Amer­i­ca with the Uni­ver­si­ty of Win­nipeg and Win­nipeg Art Gallery (WAG). Julie and Cura­tor of Indige­nous Art at the WAG, Jaimie Isaac, co-curat­ed the exhib­it Insurgence/​Resurgence which brings togeth­er the work of mul­ti­ple con­tem­po­rary Indige­nous artis­tis who make impres­sive inter­ven­tions into com­po­rary art in a vari­ety of medi­ums and impres­sions that are nation-spe­cif­ic and com­mu­ni­ty cen­tred. I was invit­ed by the WAG to bring our Elder-in-Res­i­dence, Mar­lene Kay­seas, along for the tour. Julie dis­cuss­es the inter­sec­tion of Indige­nous style and art design with the mas­ters of the form, the impo­si­tion Non-Indige­nous space makes on the indige­nous cura­to­r­i­al process, how to build inter­ac­tive dis­plays for Indige­nous youth, and how empow­er­ing mak­ing space for con­tem­po­rary Indige­nous art in the WAG can be.

Insurgence/​Resurgence will be on dis­play until Apr. 22
