Fogo Island Dialogues: Islands, Sovereignty and Decolonial Futures With Candice Hopkins and Monika Szewczyk, moderated by Nicolaus Schafhausen and special guests Linnea and Beau Dick Monday, December 12, 2016 from 2-5 pm All are welcome. Free general admission; no reserved seating. Liu Institute for Global Issues 6476 NW Marine Drive, UBC As part of the Fogo Island Dialogues, Candice Hopkins and Monika Szewczyk will present Islands, Sovereignty and Decolonial Futures, a public lecture moderated by Nicolaus Schafhausen that will reflect on intersections between their curatorial conversations around documenta 14, Learning from Athens (working title). As part of the curatorial team for the upcoming documenta 14, one of contemporary art’s most important exhibitions that opens in Athens, Greece in April 2017 and Kassel, Germany in June 2017, Hopkins and Szewczyk will consider what it might mean to establish a continuum between the West Coast and the Southeast of Europe, with special attention given to the work of Beau and Linnea Dick. Linnea Dick, who recently opened documenta 14’s Public Programs at the Athens Municipality Arts Centre, will provide an introduction to this conversation, and her father Hereditary Chief Beau Dick will provide concluding remarks. This lecture is co-presented by Fogo Island Arts and organized by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery in collaboration with the UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory with the support of the Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies. Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue that supports research and production of new work for artists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, curators, designers and thinkers from around the world. Since 2008, FIA has brought some of the most exciting, emerging and renowned artists of today to Fogo Island, Newfoundland, Canada to take part in residencies and to present solo exhibitions at the Fogo Island Gallery. Combining contemporary art, iconic architecture and social innovation in a singular setting, FIA is a world-class institution that is uniquely rooted in community. Fogo Island Arts is an initiative of the Shorefast Foundation, a registered charity dedicated to improving the social, cultural and economic conditions on Fogo Island and other small places around the world. About the participants: Beau Dick, acclaimed as one of the Northwest Coast’s most versatile and talented carvers, was born in Alert Bay, BC where he lives and works. Reaching out beyond the confines of his own Kwakwaka’wakw culture, Dick has explored new formats and techniques in his work, including painting and drawing. His work can be found in private collections as well as museums, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Gatineau, QC), the Heard Museum (Phoenix, AZ), the Burke Museum (Seattle, WA), the UBC Museum of Anthropology and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Dick’s work has been exhibited most recently in Witnesses: Art and Canada’s Indian Residential Schools (2013) at the Belkin Art Gallery, Sakahan: International Indigenous Art (2013) at the National Gallery of Canada, 75 Years of Collecting: First Nations: Myths and Realities (2006) at the Vancouver Art Gallery and Supernatural with Neil Campbell (2004) at the Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver).
