IGS 520 | Special Topics in Visual Arts: Indigenous Activist Art
In this course students will investigate the methodologies and practices of Indigenous artists in contemporary contexts of creative activism, defined as artistic work that engages social and political issues of indigeneity. The focus of this compressed course will be on the intersections of art and activism – that is, how Indigenous artists engage social, political, regional, and global issues and communities through their art. The immersive environment – five hours per day contact for a nine-day period – will create a learning environment that will encourage in-depth exploration of the traditions, methods, and practices of studio artists including Adrian Stimson (Siksika), Lori Blondeau (Cree/Saulteaux/Métis), Cheryl L’Hirondelle (Cree/Metis/German/Polish), David Garneau (Metis), Dana Claxton (Lakota), Peter Morin (Tahltan), and others who will be in residence during this week and will work closely with the students in a face-to-face environment.
