Curatorial Projects

I am interested in curatorial projects that profile Indigenous artists and their art from the North. I began my curatorial practice in 2010 as a curatorial trainee with the Yukon Art Centre and the territorial art department. As an art history student, I curated online exhibitions during the COVID lockdowns and a travelling exhibition in Alberta. As an Indigenous curator, I welcome opportunities to curate Indigenous art projects with private and public institutions looking for meaningful and respectful relations with Indigenous arts and curators. Indigenous artists create meaningful spaces to engage in conversations about current and historical issues related to contemporary and traditional art, social issues, climate change, and art criticism reflected in our art practice.
