I am looking forward to participating in Soundings, An Exhibition in Five Parts at the Agnes Etherington in Kingston, Ontario. This exhibition is co-curated by Candice Hopkins and Dylan Robinson and opens January 5, 2019. Artists include Raven Chacon, Peter Morin, Ogimaa Mikana and others.
I am working in and relation to a Mckenzie-Delta Inuvialuit rain gut parka for the exhibition. This cultural belonging is a part of the HBC Collection at the Manitoba Museum and is being loaned for the exhibition. I am making a text work for installation in relation to the rain gut parka. Additionally, the rain gut parka partly will become a score for a performance I am developing with dancers, Ceinwen Gobert and Danah Rosales, and composer/musician, Laura Ortman. This new performance will be presented at the Ka’tarohkwi Festival of Indigenous Arts at the Isabel Bader Centre for Performing Arts in March, 2019.
The Queen's University Gazette has published a small story on the exhibition.
