Wood Land School Critical Anthology
March 19 - April 23, 2016

An exhibition of documentation from the Wood Land School Critical Anthology symposium (March 11-13, 2016)

The weekend of talks brought together artists and curators to address the lack of critical writing on the work of contemporary Indigenous artists. The presentation of papers-in-progress by all the participants will work to advance the discourse around Indigenous contemporary art practices and will ultimately cohere into an anthology co-published by Or Gallery and SFU Galleries at the end of 2016.

talk

Jordan Wilson
Curating the Self
Monday, February 29, 7PM, 2016

Curated by Jonah Gray

Or Gallery is pleased to present a talk by Vancouver-based curator Jordan Wilson, the third instalment in our Curating the Self lecture series. Wilson will discuss his experiences and observations as a Musqueam community member and co-curator involved in producing the multi-site exhibition c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city. He will examine the issues present in the curation of a contemporary ethnographic (and ostensibly archaeological) exhibit, and the role of the curator—particularly a curator from the community represented—in such an endeavour. His talk will explore the question of balancing a community’s desire to right inaccurate historical representations of itself, while maintaining its privacy and control over knowledge. He will detail the challenges of respectfully approaching the representation of a collection of 10,000+ belongings (‘artefacts’) obtained through colonial displacement. He will also consider his own personal trajectory as an Indigenous curator and scholar.
