Please join Onsite Gallery and Wapatah Centre for Indigenous Visual Knowledge for an exciting virtual In-Conversation event featuring John G. Hampton as part of the Indigenizing the (Art) Museum series with Gerald McMaster.
This event is one of the many planned for Spring 2021 as part of The Indigenizing the (Art) Museum series where each week we will engage with a different curator from (art) museums around the world.
The Indigenizing the Museum Virtual Series was developed as a way to increase Indigenous community and institutional awareness of and involvement in Indigenous-led digital projects, resources, and knowledge building tools, including the Virtual Platform for Indigenous Art.
This series is hosted with Indigenous protocols in mind and with the aim of addressing questions around Indigenous curation, ceremony, and research in digital spaces.
Join Wapatah and Onsite Gallery for an engaging conversation that fosters global Indigeneity and sustainable scholarship of Indigenous cultural heritage at OCAD University and beyond.
About the Virtual Platform for Indigenous Art
The VPIA is a custom digital platform currently in development by Wapatah and Onsite Gallery at OCAD University, designed to facilitate Indigenous access and contributions to thematic-specific Indigenous artworks in museum and gallery collections around the world. Using a wiki-style approach, the VPIA allows institutional artwork records to be transformed into living documents through the integration of Indigenous knowledge, language, and protocols.
