Northern Exposure: an ekphrastic introduction to Indigenous Art History in Canada
Join us on July 1 for our workshop, Northern Exposure: an ekphrastic introduction to Indigenous Art History in Canada.
Discover the incredible creativity of Canada's Indigenous artists. From the stunning bone and stone carvings of the Inuit of the Arctic north, to the masks and totem poles of the west coast peoples, to contemporary Canadians like Norval Morrisseau and Kent Monkman, Canada's Indigenous artists have made some of the world's most important paintings and sculptures.
We will take a whirlwind tour through the centuries, from coast to coast, through today. We will discuss how the themes and concerns of Indigenous art can inspire our poetry and stories, and do a few creativity exercises to generate ideas.
