Contemporary First Nations artists in conversation

0 Posted by - February 27, 2012 - Blog

Eleven artists were invited by the School for Advanced Research to come together in a series of seminars to share their thoughts on their art work and on their lives and experiences as indigenous women. Out of these seminars comes the book Art In Our Lives: Native Women Artists In Dialogue (SAR Press, 2010). From their conversations emerged themes that individual artists wrote about: home/place, transgression/boundaries, art as healing/art as struggle, pain/joy, art practice/work, and survival/colonization. Includes chapters by Elysia Poon, Gloria Emerson, Sherry Racette, and Lora Evans.

Looks like an excellent read …
