Tanya Lukin Linklater

Fall 2023 Artist-in-Residence

Arts Research Center, University of California, Berkeley

Oct 31 – Nov 5, 2023


Tanya Lukin Linklater’s performances, works for camera, installations, and writings cite Indigenous dance and visual art lineages, our structures of sustenance, and weather. She undertakes embodied inquiry and rehearsal in relation to scores and ancestral belongings.


During her Artist-in Residence visit to campus, artist/choreographer Tanya Lukin Linklater will lead a series of open rehearsals with dance artists, Ivanie Aubin-Malo and Ceinwen Gobert. These sessions, Ewako ôma askiy. This then is the earth, respond to the cyclical, seasonal, affective, and formal qualities of selected works in Duane Linklater: mymothersside, at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. The public is invited to view the in-situ, unfolding processes of embodiment, gesture, and sensation. 


She will also be visiting with classes and Indigenous students on campus. *Please contact Laurie Macfee for more info about scheduling a class visit on site during Tanya’s performances. Tanya Lukin Linklater’s Artist-in-Residence visit is organized and sponsored by the Arts Research Center, with co-sponsorship from the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and Townsend Center for the Humanities.
