    Instigating Critical and Creative Discourse on Indigenous-Made Cinema

    indigiTALKS Video Essays Now Available Online for Viewing

    (November 15, 2013 – Toronto) This year imagineNATIVE presented its inaugural indigiTALKS Video Essay Project. Entertaining, daring and investigative, three Ontario-based artists and curators took the stage at a TED Talks-style production during imagineNATIVE 2013 to present and discuss their commissioned essays. The three artists/curators – Wanda Nanibush, Ariel Smith and Rachelle Dickenson - were challenged to initiate new theses about Indigenous-created film and video works, stimulating and contributing to the much-needed discourse surrounding artistic and cultural themes found in Indigenous-made film and video.

    Trade Marks
    On until November 23
    Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art
    401 Richmond Street West, Suite 124

    Trade Marks presents a new generation of Indigenous artists who, through newly commissioned photographic, video and audio works, challenge working assumptions of who they are. The exhibition contributes to the recently revived conversation on what it is to be Indigenous in Canada today. It also considers how these artists have responded to the imposition of Western systems of classification on non-Western arts and how their artistic practices have been informed by methodologies of decolonization. Curated by Betty Julian, artists include Keesic Douglas, Nigit'stil Norbert, Bear Witness and Meryl McMaster.
