In preparation for a new work for Soft Power at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art organized by curator of contemporary art, Eungie Joo, the curatorial team facilitated my visits to the Hearst Museum of Anthropology's collections of cultural belongings from Alaska. These visits to parkas, sewing bags and baskets and my ongoing writings about the relationships of Alutiiq peoples to museums, cultural belongings and our ancestors, have informed a new work I am developing with three dancers -- Ceinwen Gobert, Ivanie Aubin-Malo and Danah Rosales. With the support of White Water Gallery, an artist-run centre in North Bay, Ontario, I participated in a residency in July, 2019 with these dancers and Neven Lochhead, camera, documenting our process.
