Installation: No Choice About the Terminology

No Choice About the Terminology is inspired by Lewis’ struggle to determine what terminology to use to describe his ethnicity (Cherokee, Hawaiian, Samoan, raised in Northern California), and his profession (artist, poet, software developer, educator, designer), and recognizing both the danger and seduction of neat categorizations. It was commissioned by the ImagineNATIVE Festival for the Vital to the General Public Welfare exhibition. Presented by Jason Edward Lewis (University Research Chair in Computational Media and the Indigenous Future Imaginary, Concordia University)

Date: Saturday, October 20, 2018
Time: 6-11 pm
