Unregenerated: Action, Ritual, Offerings

November 30, 2002
Panel Discussion

About the Program

The Unregenerated: Action, Ritual, Offerings panel included speakers Âhasiw Maskêgon-Iskwêw, Lori Blondeau, and Anthony McNab Favel, with moderator Dana Claxton to discuss how artists are arranging sacred practices through contemporary performance art. Within many Aboriginal cultures making an offering is an act/ion of respect, an acknowledgment of life and all that we are grateful for. What is sacred and how far one will go are concerns in contemporary art making. Who defines the boundaries of interpretation and approval?
