Refreshements to follow
This event presents Anishinaabe perspectives on representations of land through visual art and Anishinaabemowin (the Anishinaabe language). Visual artist Bonnie Devine and poet and storyteller Lenore Keeshig will each present examples of their work and its intrinsic connection to land. Community worker and geography student Connor Pion and curator Wanda Nanibush (the first curator of Indigenous Art at the AGO) will then join in as respondents. This event intentionally centres Anishinaabe knowledge and experience while also offering a conversational framework to allow participants and audience members an opportunity for exchange and discussion. Andrew Hunter (Fredrik S. Eaton Curator, Canadian Art, at the Art Gallery of Ontario) will also participate as a presenter.
