Oilspill: the Inevitability of Enbridge, 2011 Marianne Nicolson
Open Space in Victoria is presenting A Travelling Exhibition, work by eleven indigenous artists from across Canada, until August 25 2012. Featured artists are Kwakwaka’wakw artist Marianne Nicolson, and Tania Willard, Lindsay Delaronde, Sandra Semchuk & James Nicholas, Emilio Portal, Neal Mcleod, Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, Cathi Charles Wherry and others. The exhibition is time-based, with the premise of extending the show into cultural time, one work at a time, each shown for one month.
Curator Peter Morin of the Tahltan nation is interested in applying Indigenous cultural values in his approach to this exhibition. Two questions inspire his curatorial work:
When you meet me on the land, how will we share our stories?, and
When you meet me on the land, how will time give space for our stories?
The public is invited to a curatorial talk by Peter Morin at 7:30 on November 8 2011, at Open Space, 510 Fort Street, Victoria.
