D’horizons et d’estuaires : entre mémoires et créations autochtones is a collection of essays bringing together the voices of 16 Francophone and Anglophone Indigenous artists, curators, art historians and cultural workers, working in the territories that we call Quebec. Following on from exhibitions, performances, artist residencies and discussions that took place during the Indigenous Curatorial Collective’s Tiohtià: ke Project (2017-2019), these texts honor the relationships and kinships that are at the heart of these visual arts practices.
What place do Indigenous visual creations currently occupy in Quebec society? How do creators imagine the future of their cultural expressions? Through the diversity of points of view and the challenges raised by these texts, this book asks crucial questions about the future of Indigenous arts and opens the door to long-awaited dialogues in Quebec which, we hope, will allow us to create real positive changes. Now is the time to dive into these dazzling collective imaginaries and swim in the rippling waters of these resilient memories.
Co-directed by Camille Larivée and Léuli Eshrāghi for the Indigenous Curatorial Collective.
