University of King’s College presents a public lecture by Dr. Heather Igloliorte, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Decolonlial and Transformational Indigenous Art Practices in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Victoria. Formerly she was a Tier 1 University Research Chair in Circumpolar Indigenous Arts & Associate Professor, Department of Art History, Concordia University.
Her lecture is titled: “Illavut/ Our Relatives: Transforming Relations Between Inuit and Institutions Through Care, Mentorship, and Collaboration.” In this presentation, Dr. Igloliorte discusses how she and other Inuit scholars, curators, artists and museum professionals are currently reshaping how circumpolar Inuit art is written about, exhibited and collected within Canada and around the world. This lecture is part of a public series called “Representations of Colonization and De-Colonization”. Drawing from art, museology, literature, science and philosophy, the series features lectures by leading international authorities exploring the exploitation, erasure, and systemic marginalization of Indigenous and Black communities and their culture in Canada and abroad.
