Tanya Lukin Linklater

Tanya Lukin Linklater's performances, works for camera, installations, and writings center histories of Indigenous peoples’ lived experiences, (home)lands, and structures of sustenance. Her performances in relation to objects in exhibition, scores, and ancestral belongings generate what she has come to call felt structures. She investigates insistence in both concept and application. Her work has been shown at the Aichi Triennial, Art Gallery of Ontario, Chicago Architecture Biennial, Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University, New Museum Triennial, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Toronto Biennial of Art, and elsewhere. Her first book of poetry, Slow Scrape, was published by the Centre for Expanded Poetics and Anteism in 2020. Linklater studied at University of Alberta (M.Ed.) and Stanford University (A.B. Honours), and she is a doctoral candidate in Cultural Studies at Queen's University. She received the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts in 2021. Linklater's Alutiiq/Sugpiaq homelands are in the Kodiak Island archipelago in southwestern Alaska (Native Villages of Afognak and Port Lions). She is represented by Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver.
