Indigenous Voices and white pedagogy

85 - 2018

In Indigenous Voices and white pedagogy I would like to question the position that white curatorial voices presume in the contemporary art field regarding the work of First Nation artists. As a white curator, I want to use my voice, educated under a regime of white pedagogy, to question the validity of my position. I attempt to unravel what I see as a form colonialism that still exists in Canadian art institutions in this essay, which I see as a discussion, inquiry, and reflection rather than an academic analysis. After describing the context of an exhibition I worked on with First Nation artists, I name a series of well-known exhibitions that feature work by First Nations artists as a way of indicating the trend, and I cite different voices who are affected by this question.
