PANEL DISCUSSION – Peripheral Vision(s)
Doors open and refreshments 6 pm. Panel Discussion from 7 – 9 pm
Please join us at the McMaster Museum of Art for an insightful, critical dialogue on the “Indian” image and how it has shaped and been shaped by artists over time. Drawing on themes central to Peripheral Vision(s)―representation, portraiture, commemoration, truth, and history-making―the panelists will offer up their individual perspectives on the work of 19th century Northern Plains warrior-artists and 20th century artists, Leonard Baskin and Fritz Scholder, whilst situating their works within the broadened context of Indigenous art history. The panelists have all contributed essays to the Peripheral Vision(s) publication which launches at this event.
