Becoming Our Future: Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice

Regular price $40.00

This book reflects on international Indigenous methodologies in curatorial practice from the geographic spaces of Canada, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia, outlining specific cultural knowledges, protocols, and relationships.

Becoming Our Future explores how Indigenous visual art and culture operate within and from a structural framework that is unique within the cultural milieu. Contributions by Indigenous curators, artists, and scholars are brought together to highlight perspectives that define curatorial practices, while at the same time postulating Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination within the three focus countries.

A selection of essays begins to unearth the connections and historical moments that draw Indigenous curatorial practices together and the difference that set them apart.
