Who are we? And who do we aspire to be?
LandMarks 2017: Reimagine Land, Art, and Cultural Identities is a national art project that ignites a conversation about Canada at 150 through art. LandMarks2017 is a series of new multidisciplinary art projects inspired by nature. Five curators will inspire and lead art students, established artists and local communities in the creation of collaborative works of art. As part of Indigenous Visual Culture Day at OCAD on Tuesday, September 20 (113 McCaul St.), one of the LandMarks curators, Tania Willard, along with artists Cheryl L’Hirondelle and Camille Turner, will present their work amidst the broader themes of LandMarks 2017.
Additionally, you can check out the screening of Cree Code Talker, a new documentary film on Charles “Checker” Tomkins (Métis) and his contributions during the Second World War. This will be followed by a discussion w/ panelists Boye Ladd, John Moses, Dr. Candace S. Green and Dr. Gerald McMaster. After that, feast on roasted corn and enjoy a Round Dance and POW WOW ORCHESTRA concert in Butterfield Park.
