Peter Morin will launch SOVA’s Indexes of the Land II with a lecture on October 20th at 7:00 pm at Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre, 1131 Front Street, Dawson, across from the Dawson Visitor Reception Centre. Everyone is welcome.
Peter Morin is a Tahltan Nation artist, curator and writer based in Brandon, Manitoba.
This public lecture-workshop series examines the importance of the land to Aboriginal artists with regard to a variety of concepts and practices.
The Indexes of the Land II: Aboriginal Artists Lecture-Workshop 2016-17 series is focused on the land because historic and contemporary Aboriginal art practices have consistently been rooted in products of the land, social geography, land use, terrestrial species, treaty rights and ultimately nationhood. This 2016-17 series extends from the 2015-16 Indexes series that opened up a dialogue on how the volume of ideas around the land (and not excluding the water) can be shared to promote concepts of cultural difference in Canada.
Peter Morin will also host a workshop on Saturday, October 22 at 1:00pm in the SOVA Main Floor studio, 994 Third Avenue, Dawson. Participants will engage in visualizations of their life stories via experimental drawing techniques. Advance registration is required. Please call 867.993.6390 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
SOVA is also pleased to welcome Peter Morin as artist-in-residence, October 17 – 27, 2016. For more information and his bio: SOVA artist-in-residence
