Tanya Lukin Linklater

Tanya Lukin Linklater’s performances, works for camera, installations, and writings centre histories of Indigenous peoples’ lives, 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 ICA at Virginia Commonwealth University, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Remai Modern, Chicago Architecture Biennial, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery and elsewhere. She will participate in Soft Water Hard Stone, the New Museum Triennial 2021. Her first book of poetry, Slow Scrape, was published by The Centre for Expanded Poetics and Anteism in 2020. She 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. In 2021 Tanya received the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts. Her 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.
