Over the course of four months—from January to April, 2019—Queen’s University, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts will host an unprecedented series of connected events that seek to fill these spaces and the outdoor spaces that surround them with Indigenous art, performance, and discussions on Indigenous resurgence. The Ka’tarohkwi Festival of Indigenous Arts is curated by writer, scholar, and Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Arts at Queen’s University, Dylan Robinson (Stó:lō). Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts is co-curated by Robinson and internationally renowned curator Candice Hopkins (Tlingit).  The will feature 14 new works by Indigenous artists.  Each of these works will act as a “score” for some kind of performance, sound, or action. There is also a performance program and public speakers program called Against Hungry Listening which will feature visiting artists and scholars discussing de-colonial, queer, feminist, Black and Indigenous-specific forms of listening.  Learn more.
