An opportunity to contribute to the development of Virtual Platform for Indigenous Art (VPIA), this event will convene a panel of Inuit artists and scholars to discuss the role and importance of materiality and sustainable scholarship in the creation and presentation of Inuit art. Our three exciting speakers include:
Nyla Innuksuk, a film director, virtual reality content creator, and CEO of Mixtape VR, a 360 and Virtual Reality production company based in Toronto.
Couzyn van Heuvelen, a sculptor and installation artist whose works draw from both art history and Inuit life.
Krista Ulujuk Zawadski, a researcher and curator whose career bridges Arctic anthropology, museology, and critical collecting practices.
Panelists will speak about the motivations behind their artistic practices, and their visions for how Inuit art as a whole can gain new meaning, interpretations, and audiences through digital platforms such as the Virtual Platform for Indigenous Art.
This free event is facilitated as part of the VPIA project workshop series and in collaboration with Onsite Gallery’s public event program for ᐊᕙᑖᓂᑦ ᑕᒪᐃᓐᓂᑦ ᓄᓇᑐᐃᓐᓇᓂᑦ /Among All These Tundras exhibition.
