Towards Accountability | Session 2: Indigenous Curatorial and Artistic Practices

The second convening examines the ways in which Indigenous artists and curators have drawn on their community and family backgrounds in their respective practices, and how these distinct (and diverse) approaches may impart alternative modes of working in the context of contemporary art. In other words, how has an Indigenous ‘sensibility’ (to borrow from Nêhiyaw artist/facilitator Elwood Jimmy) informed artistic and curatorial practices, and in turn, how have these practices shifted institutional behavior? What lessons might Indigenous protocols, values, and ways of knowing to provide to not only Indigenous but also non-Indigenous professionals and practitioners in making the field of contemporary art more equitable and beneficial for BIPOC peoples? Alternatively, to what extent are such approaches translatable, or, put otherwise, should they be subject to cross-cultural exchange?

Participating Speakers: asinnajaq and Lori Blondeau.
