The Mellon Foundation Lecture in Native American Art
Guest Lecturer Heather Igloliorte
7 p.m. in the Mary Eddy Auditorium
    

The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the OU School of Visual Art is proud to present the Mellon Foundation Lecture in Native American Art on Friday, September 13 at 7 p.m. in the Mary Eddy Auditorium. Guest lecturer Heather Igloliorte is an Inuk scholar and independent curator who holds the University Research Chair in Indigenous Art History and Community Engagement at Concordia University. Heather is the Co-Director of the Initiative for Indigenous Futures Cluster (IIF) in the Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology. Igloliorte works with collaborators and students to explore how Indigenous people are imagining the future of their families and communities. Her teaching and research interests center on Inuit and other Native North American visual and material culture, circumpolar art studies, performance and media art, the global exhibition of Indigenous arts and culture, and issues of colonization, sovereignty, resistance and resurgence. In this lecture, she will discuss the emergent field of Inuit curatorial practice and explore how Inuit artists and curators are enacting exciting changes in the arts in Canada by bringing Inuit knowledge into museums and galleries. Please contact Dr. Jackson Rushing, the Adkins Presidential Professor of Art History and Mary Lou Milner Carver Chair in Native American Art, for more information about this lecture.
