Becoming Our Future

Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice



ISBN: 9781921668425 Category:


Becoming Our Future: Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice reflects on international Indigenous methodologies in curatorial practice from the geographic spaces of Canada, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia to assert specific cultural knowledges, protocols and relationships. These knowledges are grounded in continuous international exchanges and draws on the breadth of work within the field.

This volume explores the way Indigenous visual art and culture operates within, and from, a structural framework that is unique to the cultural milieu. Through a selection of contributions by Indigenous curators, artists, and scholars, this book brings together perspectives that define curatorial practices, while simultaneously postulating Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination within the three countries. These compelling essays begin to unearth the connections and historical moments that draw Indigenous curatorial practices together and the differences that set them apart.

With contributions from Nigel Borell, Freja Carmichael, Karl Chitham, Nici Cumpston, LĂ©uli Eshraghi, Reuben Friend, Jarita Greyeyes, Ioana Gordon-Smith, Dr Heather Igloliorte, Jaimie Isaac, Carly Lane, Cathy Mattes, Kimberley Moulton, Lisa Myers, Dr Julie Nagam, Dr Jolene Rickard, Megan Tamati-Quennell, Josh Tengan and Daina Warren.
