Changing Landscape; Inclusion of the Indigenous Voice in Canadian Art

Artist and curator Patricia Deadman discusses how Canadian art history is evolving with the impact of leading Indigenous artistic voices over the last 50 years. She will talk about how these changes have also influenced her own personal artistic and curatorial practice. She explores how the inclusion of Indigenous voices within Canadian art history is imperative to understanding regional sensibilities and worldviews rooted within cosmologies distinct from nation to nation.

Born in Oshweken, Ontario, Deadman is Tuscarora, and currently lives in Woodstock. Museum London has recently acquired photographs from Deadman's Paris Gardens series which are on display in the exhibition Noongom / Ullumi / Anohc / Anichiish / Non:wa / Today: Recent Acquisitions.

Note: the previously publicized speaker for this talk is no longer available.
