Stonecroft Symposium: In Dialogue

Saturday, 12 May 2018, 9:00 a.m.

CUAG invites you to the Stonecroft Symposium: In Dialogue, which takes place at the gallery and in St. Patrick’s Building Room 100 (adjacent to the gallery) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Stonecroft Symposium: In Dialogue will create a forum for conversations initiated by the First Nations, Métis and Sami artists featured in our summer exhibition, In Dialogue, organized by John G. Hampton. As Hampton has said, the works of the artists embrace the “tumble of connections and contradictions that constitute contemporary Indigenous identities.”

The symposium features artists Raven Davis, Jason Lujan, Nadia Myre, Nicole Kelly Westman, a keynote by Cathy Mattes, an exhibition tour, a performance by Peter Morin and a panel discussion moderated by John Hampton. Other participants include Michelle LaVallee, Danielle Printup, Alexandra Kahsenni:io Nahwegabow, and Summer-Harmony Twenish. We will release a full schedule soon.

Attendance is free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not necessary. Coffee and tea will be provided. Attendees can buy lunch in the Residence Commons cafeteria. CUAG and St. Pat’s 100 are accessible, barrier-free spaces.

The Stonecroft Symposium: In Dialogue is the first in a series of free annual symposia, held over the next five years. The series is made possible with a generous gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts. It enables CUAG to cultivate discussions of timely and relevant ideas raised by the artists who lead our programming, and to encourage open and reciprocal public exchange.

CUAG acknowledges with sincere gratitude the support of the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, which promotes education in the visual arts and fosters the public’s appreciation of the visual arts.
