Models for writing and teaching art historical knowledge have traditionally emerged from a western framework. The implications for knowledge formed under this lineage are often wrapped up in questions of perception and culture. Within conversations about Indigenous art, these factors call into play ideas of pedagogy and practice. The question of how Indigenous artists, curators, and scholars define art historical knowledge in relation to their own work locates Indigenous art histories in practices that come from contemporary and dynamic Indigenous-led research. Expansive Approaches to Indigenous Art Histories is a speaker series organized to question: What are Indigenous art histories? Who authors them? For what purpose? How does this knowledge get stored? How is it shared? And what ethical considerations emerge as a result of these shifts in thinking?

Presentations are scheduled take place Thursdays from 10 to 11:20 a.m. in room 420, 205 Richmond St. W. The first five of eleven speakers this term are:

September 6: Alan Corbiere
September 13: Bonnie Devine

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
