@lightworkorg #UVP commissioned artists Adam and Zack Khalil (Ojibway) in conversation with
@giampaolobianconi, Curatorial Assistant in Department of Media & Performance Art at @themuseumofmodernart
“Native American culture is a perversely fetishized commodity, and in order to make films about our tribe, it was first necessary to acknowledge and address that native communities relationship with video has long been one of extraction and misrepresentation. One of the foundational texts for this film was a poem our mother wrote titled “Native Videographers Shoot Back.” Its title aptly describes the tone of our film. We intended to fire back against the anthropologists who would seal away our history in an archive or patronizing ethnographic film.”

The beautiful and talented Chief Lady Bird + OCH Raven earrings = ZING. She is one of my favourite artists bringing the woodlands style to the next level. Although I live so far away from our traditional territory, I love connecting with fellow Anishinaabe creators via our creations. Earrings by me, stone foxitude by @chiefladybird .
In Winnipeg and still haven’t grabbed your copy of the “in memoriam...” box set or publication? Head on down to @pluginica before they’re gone!
#repost “in memoriam... Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (Nee Belcourt) and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau” vinyl and catalogue now in the shop!
In conjunction with the performance curated by Ociciwan Collective, the publication and vinyl feature a new score by Postcommodity and Alex Waterman in response to Robert Ashley's 1963 "In Memoriam" scores. Ashley's original scores memorialize famous figures from American history and the fifth score honours the lives of Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (Nee Belcourt) and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau, three Indigenous women who lived in territory as it became the province of Alberta. The project continues Ashley’s investigation of history and music and asks questions who is memorialized and how. @ociciwan @ravenchcn #inmemoriam
