Indigenous Movement: A Discussion

Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University 

January 13, 2020, 6 – 7:30 pm

Via Zoom webinar 


Writer and curator Candice Hopkins moderates this conversation, which brings together Commonwealth artists Tanya Lukin Linklater and Tiffany Shaw-Collinge with Vanessa Bolin, an activist, singer, and leader of the Richmond Indigenous Society; it will be introduced by Commonwealth co-curator Stephanie Smith.


This panel is inspired by two works presented in Commonwealth. Lukin Linklater, an artist who often works with dance and choreography, has designed space for Indigenous performance in collaboration with architect Shaw-Collinge. The ICA’s exhibition pairs their 2019 sculpture, Indigenous geometries, with Lukin Linklater's newly commissioned performance for camera, This moment an endurance to the end forever.

Tanya Lukin Linklater read from Slow Scrape for the inaugural Arctic Art Book Fair in November, 2020. 


Free and open to the public, the Arctic Art Book Fair is a multi-day celebration of artists’ and independent presses featuring over 35 local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of presentations, readings and artists’ projects. Featured exhibitors produce everything from books, magazines, zines and printed ephemera to digital, performative or other experimental forms of publication.


AABF is organized by Mondo Books and is the first art book fair to our knowledge that brings together producers from all over the circumpolar north; Alaska, Northern Canada, Greenland, Northern Scandinavia and Russia. The fair, which will be hosted by a different arctic country in the upcoming years, hopes to provide a sustainable meeting place and exhibition venue for arctic artistic communities and local audiences from the Barents region. It is also committed to arctic content, with a focus on Indigenous perspectives, under-represented voices and emphasizes cross-border collaborations.


It was held November 13-15, 2020 in Tromso, Norway.
