This event, originally scheduled for April 22, now takes place on May 27.
Join nehiyaw iskwew (Plains Cree) artist, writer, and producer, Trina Moyan, and adjunct curator, Rui Mateus Amaral, as they navigate the landscapes of Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s exhibition Summer. Drawing on the nature of walks, oral history and performance, this event will move between various reference points related to mythology, cosmology, world history and personal memory to explore new meanings in Gonzalez-Torres’s work. The programme will embrace questions and observations from the audience.
Trina is nehiyaw iskwew (Plains Cree) from the Frog Lake First Nation in Northern Alberta, Treaty 6 medicine chest territory. Tkaronto became her second home 16 years ago and she is honoured to work and raise her family upon the lands of the “Dish with One Spoon” treaty. Trina is a co-founder of Bell & Bernard, a First Nations consulting firm. Trina’s life and work is inspired by her two sons and her mother Jeanne – a residential school survivor.
