LandMarks 2019: (Spatial Storytelling: Land, Art, Place and Community)
Instructor: Jackson 2bears
A specialized Art Studio based course offered by the Faculty of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Galt Museum & Archives.
In the Spring of 2019, students are invited to enroll in a specialized course with a focus on creating new, site-specific artworks in a range of interdisciplinary artistic practices. Working on-site at Fort Whoop-Up in Indian Battle Park (Lethbridge, Treaty 7–Blackfoot Territory) students will take inspiration from the rich cultural history of this heritage site, while creating artworks that will be installed on-location. Artworks created in this course will be included in a major exhibition to take place in June 2019. Students in the course will meet with Blackfoot knowledge keepers, contemporary artists from the community, as well as work together in a unique, collaborative capacity which will be inspired and enframed by Indigenous ways of knowing, being, sharing, learning and creating.
Prerequisites: 15 university level courses including a minimum of two Art Studio courses at the 3000 or 4000 level
