This series invites Native American and First Nations women artists and curators living and working in the United States and Canada to highlight their individual practices and share their experience as knowledge producers in the contemporary art world. The speakers will share their art- and exhibition-making processes and collaborations, as well as thoughts about their roles and responsibilities as cultural stewards.

What would the world look like if we thought of ourselves as companion species? Marie Watt doesn’t pretend to have the answer to this question, but her work does seek to forge relationships and reveal aspects of our connectedness to one another, to animals, and to the natural world. Rather than presenting her extensive body of work in chronological order, Watt will piece together themes in a way that might resemble sewing together a blanket.

Tickets to individual lectures may be available the day of the lecture on a space-available basis. Standby is first-come, first-served, one hour prior to the lecture. Individual tickets Members: $16; Non-members: $24.
