In the second edition of the Museum of Anthropology’s new series, The Work We Do, join MOA curator Karen Duffek and Musqueam guest curator Jordan Wilson as they discuss the ideas behind In a Different Light: Reflecting on Northwest Coast Art.
Opened in 2017, the exhibition invites visitors to see Northwest Coast art “in a different light,” placing extraordinary historical objects and belongings in relation to the voices of contemporary Indigenous artists, activists and other thinkers.
Watch a short documentary that gives a behind-the-scenes look at recent changes made to the gallery, highlighting the care and attention given to mounting and displaying the new works. The screening will be followed by a Q + A.
This online event features Musqueam member Jordan Wilson, a curator, writer, and PhD student in Anthropology at New York University. He has published on Musqueam and contemporary Indigenous art, and co-curated two exhibitions at MOA: c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city (2015) and In a Different Light: Reflecting on Northwest Coast Art (2017).
