Tussling and Public Spectacle

December 1, 2002
Panel Discussion

About the Program

The Tussling and Public Spectacle panel included speakers Edward Poitras, Lynne Bell, and Greg A. Hill, with moderator Shelley Niro. Art and politics meet, collide, engage, and clash. This panel visited sites and practices of spectacle and resistance, and commented on how public interventions and reconfiguration of non-Aboriginal modes bring critical discussion and awareness to Aboriginal concerns. Through artistic practices that connect the geo- and socio-political realities of contemporary culture and decolonization, this discussion showed strategies that tussle with concepts of hierarchies and non-Aboriginal government.
