Determined by the river, a discursive event
November 3-4, 2017
Remai Modern, Saskatoon
In connection to their collaborative exhibition project, Determined by the river, Tanya Lukin Linklater and Duane Linklater have organized a series of conversations with Indigenous artists and thinkers.
“We are gathering. Alongside the raft, we are gathering for conversations with Indigenous artists and thinkers, to activate the exhibition with Indigenous ideas about art-making, collections, and responsibilities to communities. These conversations will centre our collective concerns, at this moment, which may be political and/or felt in our everyday lives. The participants are from Saskatchewan and Alberta and they have generously agreed to be with us, to speak. Together, we hope that our analysis will catalyze the museum and what it represents, to act in accordance with history, in this moment, for the future. What does it mean for Indigenous peoples to be in relation to museums? What does it mean for museums to be in relation to Indigenous peoples?”
—Tanya Lukin Linklater and Duane Linklater
