Commissaire : rudi aker

Alors que le projet Tiohtià:ke touche à sa fin après deux années de programmation (expositions, délégation de commissaires, soirée de projections vidéos, résidence d'artiste et plus encore) nous vous invitons à venir célébrer cette initiative unique au Québec lors d'une soirée de performances et de projections vidéos d'artistes autochtones sélectionnés par rudi aker, commissaire invité de l'événement. Vous aurez aussi l'occasion de voir des images d'archives des activités réalisées dans le cadre de ce projet, en plus de savourer des plats traditionnels autochtones. Avec entre autres, des performances d'Arielle Twist, Lindsay Dobbin, ODAYA et Raven Davis.

L'événement est gratuit et vous donne aussi accès à l'exposition Bravez le Monumental de l'artiste anishinaabe Rebecca Belmore.

L'ACC-CCA souhaite remercier le Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal pour son soutien dans la réalisation de l’événement.

Le Projet Tiohtià:ke est l’un des 200 projets exceptionnels soutenus par le programme Nouveau chapitre du Conseil des arts du Canada.

Curator: rudi aker

As the Tiohtià:ke Project comes to a close after two years of programming (exhibitions, curators delegation, video screenings, artist residency and more), we invite you to come celebrate this unique initiative in Quebec during an evening of performances and screenings by Indigenous artists selected by rudi aker, guest curator of the event. You will also have the opportunity to see archives of the past events of this project, as well as enjoy traditional Indigenous food. With performances by Arielle Twist, Lindsay Dobbin, ODAYA and Raven Davis, among others. 

This event is free and also gives you access to the exhibition Facing the Monumental from Anishinaabe artist Rebecca Belmore.

L'ACC-CCA would like to thank the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal for its support in the production of the event.

The Tiohtià:ke Project is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program.

Orienting ourselves toward the open waters, Great Ocean Dialogues begins from a generative refusal of the idea that the Pacific is a vacant space peripheral to imperialistic power and flows of capital. This event positions the Great Ocean as both a return to and a reimagining of our ancestral and current connections across cultural and geographic contexts. How can this concept contribute to shaping Indigenous contemporary art transnationally and from Indigenous perspectives? How can we create and sustain networks of support across the ocean? Where do our practices, knowledges and struggles for sovereignty align, and where do they diverge? And how do we honour our differences when seeking connection?

This two-day gathering will feature conversations between local First Nations artists and knowledge keepers alongside international and Vancouver-based guests in order to explore these questions.

Great Ocean Dialogues is organized in partnership between the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective / Collectif des commissaires autochtones, SFU Galleries and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
