Making Place




Lectures Vancouver, BC, Canada March 7, 2017 - November 30, 2017

2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Across Canada individuals and institutions are asking what the sesquicentennial means for this country and are examining our understanding of nationhood. This year-long speaker series looks at visual art, design and art institutions in relation to ideas concerning Indigeneity, colonialism, immigration and national identity. Four prominent Canadians — curator Wanda Nanibush, artist Jin-me Yoon, curator Michelle Jacques and cultural historian Michael Prokopow — share their thoughts on these connections and our evolving sense of place.
