A cash bar and light snacks will be provided following the talk.

Art Historian and author Dr. Richard William Hill is Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Gerald McMaster, adjunct curator at Remai Modern, is an author, artist and professor of Indigenous Visual Culture and Critical Curatorial Studies at OCAD University.

About the talk
