My Life As An Avatar: Skawennati (artist talk and screenings)
Mon 1 Jul 5:30 p.m.
Join us for this special event with internationally renowned multi-media artist Skawennati who will be sharing her practice exploring Indigenous Futurisms accompanied by a selection of her movie works. Skawennati has shown her artwork at the Venice Biennale, Montreal Biennale and the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.
Skawennati's practice can be seen as a way that opens a space for imagining Indigenous people in the future, alive and thriving, contributing their skills, talents and knowledges to a healthy, harmonious, pluralistic society. The talk will touch upon navigating new media and Indigenous voices within that space.
Come along and warm yourself up with free soup and fry bread before the event!

6pm: Artist talk including movies TimeTraveller™ (selected episodes); She Falls For Ages; The Peacemaker Returns; and Words Before All Else Parts 1-3
