Panel Discussion

About the Program

The Mapping the Movement panel included speakers Dr. Beatrice Medicine, Guy Sioui Durand, and James Luna, with moderator Aiyyana Maracle to discuss various themes relating to the history of Aboriginal performance art, as well as contextualize the continuum of culture through the practice. Concerns of ritual, ceremony, and sacredness were discussed as the panelists investigate the developing critical discourse regarding performance art and how it is linked to history. Part of the discussion also addressed how contemporary art practices are informed by and connected to the past.
