Curator's Talk & Tour
Artware: Northwest Coast Designs and Everyday Objects
The objects displayed in the MOV Studio’s latest micro exhibition, Artware: Northwest Coast Designs and Everyday Objects, are more than mere tourist trinkets. The objects showcase Aboriginal-themed commercial products developed by Vancouver-based artists and companies. The objects selected highlight shifts in relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples, as illustrated in the design of the objects themselves and in the exchanges and practices to which they give rise.
Join exhibition curator and anthropologist Solen Roth for a talk and tour of Artware: Northwest Coast Designs and Everyday Objects. Learn more about the history of the Native Northwest Coast artware industry in Vancouver and efforts of Northwest Coast artists to make this market benefit their communities through meaningful collaborations and culturally sensitive entrepreneurship.
Date: Thursday, November 6th, 2014
Admission: This Talk & Tour is free to attend. General admission rates apply for access to feature and permanent exhibitions.
Solen Roth is an anthropologist whose work focuses on art markets and intercultural exchanges. She conducted her doctoral research on Vancouver's Northwest Coast artware market.
