Inuit Art On-Line
Thursday, November 28, 2019
5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Co-presented with Wapatah: Centre for Indigenous Visual Knowledge

Onsite Gallery
199 Richmond St. West

Free event as part of Onsite Gallery's public event program for ᐊᕙᑖᓂᑦ ᑕᒪᐃᓐᓂᑦ ᓄᓇᑐᐃᓐᓇᓂᑦ / Among All These Tundras.


This public symposium will convene a panel of Inuit artists and scholars to discuss the role and importance of materiality in the creation and presentation of Inuit art. Discussions will additionally explore how the social, cultural and environmental complexity embedded in material artworks might be expressed and navigated through digital representation as part of the Virtual Platform for Indigenous Art, a new digital arts portal being created in partnership between OCAD U’s Wapatah Centre for Indigenous Visual Knowledge and Onsite Gallery.

 

Krista Ulujuk Zawadski was raised in Igluligaarjuk (Chesterfield Inlet) and currently calls Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, her home. Zawadski completed a Master’s Degree in Anthropology at the University of British Columbia in 2016, and has focused her education and career in the heritage sector in Nunavut and in the fields of Arctic anthropology, museology and collections-based research, with an emphasis on fostering accessibility to collections for Inuit. Zawadski participated in the Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution, the Otsego Institute for Native American Art History at the Fenimore Art Museum and is currently working for the Government of Nunavut as a curator. Zawadski is currently studying at Carleton University in an interdisciplinary PhD Program.

Nyla Innuksuk is an Inuit film director, writer, producer, and virtual reality content creator. She was born in Igloolik and raised in Iqaluit, Nunavut. She received a degree in film production from Ryerson University in 2009. Innuksuk works primarily on short documentary and fiction films focusing on Inuit and Indigenous peoples' stories. Her films are portraits of communities and community members in the Arctic, with a strong commitment to including community members in all production phases. Innuksuk is the owner and CEO of Mixtape VR, a 360 and Virtual Reality production company operating out of Toronto.

Couzyn van Heuvelen is an Inuk sculptor and installation artist originally from Iqaluit, NU, and currently based in Bowmanville, ON. Van Heuvelen received his BFA from York University in 2011 and his MFA in 2015 from NSCAD University. His artistic practice primarily consists of sculptural and installation works that draw from both art history and Inuit life. Across his varied works, he fuses traditional practices and forms with contemporary materials and fabrication processes.

 


The Wapatah Centre for Indigenous Visual Knowledge is a hub for facilitating the documentation, communication and translation of Indigenous ways of seeing. Drawing on the inseparable concepts of perception and knowing, Wapatah assists Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and researchers to collaborate on the presentation and representation of artistic knowledge. Wapatah highlights the innumerable lenses through which Indigenous people envision the world–whether through artistic production, language, or interaction with the land–using each of these as a research tool to form new questions and concepts about the world. Wapatah promotes Indigenous research at multiple scales, from Indigenous-led research at OCADU to creating connections and partnerships at the global level.

Family Kit: Among All These Tundras

Among All These Tundras family kit
Friday, November 1, 2019 - 11:45am

Onsite Gallery, OCAD University is happy to offer a free interactive guide for families and young visitors to creatively engage with our current contemporary art exhibition, ᐊᕙᑖᓂᑦ ᑕᒪᐃᓐᓂᑦ ᓄᓇᑐᐃᓐᓇᓂᑦ / Among All These Tundras.

What is the family kit?

The family kit is a self-guided tour designed for families or younger visitors. It contains questions and activities to help younger audiences engage with the artwork within the exhibition.

The family kit has:

  1. Activity cards that includes questions and activities organized by artwork. It consists of three parts:
     
    1. Something to think about…
      This section has questions that encourages viewers to have a closer look at the artwork in order to help them engage with the main ideas proposed by the artwork. Great for any age 3 years+.
       
    2. Activity (each has its own name)
      These are didactic activities thought to stimulate the use of diverse senses as well as the imagination of the young visitors and their companions.
       
    3. Let’s continue the discussion!
      Questions with a higher level of complexity. They are meant for a teen audience and those that are critical-thinking oriented.
       
  2. Family kit (the box) with diverse materials that are provided for the activities.

 

Intended audiences

  • Children from 3 years +, but toddlers may also join the fun
  • Teenagers
  • Their companions and/or caregivers


How to access the family kit
Simply visit Onsite Gallery (199 Richmond St. West) and ask for the family kit at the front desk.

The family kit was created by Karina Roman Justo and activity cards designed by Ghislan Timm.

 

Among All These Tundras, a title taken from the poem ‘My Home Is in My Heart’ by famed Sámi writer Nils-Aslak Valkeapää, features contemporary art by Indigenous artists from around the circumpolar world. Together, their works politically and poetically express current Arctic concerns towards land, language, sovereignty and resurgence. Artists from throughout the circumpolar north share kinship with each other and their ancestors, love for their homelands, and respect for the land and its inhabitants. Yet they also share histories of colonialism and experience its ongoing legacies and are united in their desire to protect northern ecologies, languages, peoples and knowledge from the nefarious effects of climate change, encroaching industry and competition. These resistance efforts do not merely express, they give shape to a collective ecology of care, a “decolonial love” (in the words of Leanne Simpson and others) that is both generous and generative. These works invite viewers to contemplate relationships between textual and embodied Indigenous knowledges, innovation and sustainability, humour and resilience, and our collective responsibility to northern life and land. The exhibition publication is available online here.

Join Peter Morin for a performative reciprocal exchange with the artworks in ᐊᕙᑖᓂᑦ ᑕᒪᐃᓐᓂᑦ ᓄᓇᑐᐃᓐᓇᓂᑦ / Among All These Tundras.

Peter Morin is a grandson of Tahltan ancestor artists. He has now lived away from his home territory for most of his life, but like his ancestors who have walked on the land, he carries Tahltan knowledge, ideas and history with him wherever he is. Every step along the way, Tahltan knowledge has guided his researching, dreaming, learning, making of the past twenty years of artistic and curatorial practice. Ideas and artwork can travel and bodies are their can be a vehicles for ideas to travel. The Tahltan Nation is currently comprised of three communities located in british columbia: Iskut, Dease Lake, and Telegraph Creek. The Tahltan Nation territory is 3857. 06 kms from Peter’s current home Toronto ON. Tahltan leaders signed a Declaration of Independence from canada on Oct 18, 1910. Morin began art school in 1997, completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver in 2001 and his Masters in Fine Arts in 2010 at the University of British Columbia-Okanagan. Initially trained in lithography, Morin’s artistic practice moves from printmaking to poetry to installation to performance art. Peter is the son of Janelle Morin (Crow Clan, Tahltan Nation) and Pierre Morin (Quebecois). Peter was given the Tahltan name Ezeck-Tah by his grandmother Dinah Creyke when he turned 13. Throughout his exhibition and making history, Peter has focused upon his matrilineal inheritances in homage to the matriarchal structuring of the Tahltan Nation. Morin was longlisted for the Brink and Sobey Awards, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In 2016, Morin received the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Canadian Mid-Career Artist. Morin currently holds a tenured appointment in the Faculty of Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto.
