My talk and the seminar center on Indigenous Contemporary art, on Indigenous curation, critical writing, practices, and conversations that are in dialogue with local and international communities. We will discuss the philosophical and practical consequences of the identity shift from Aboriginal to Indigenous; the tension between being an artist who is Indigenous and being an Indigenous artist; the question "Is art criticism possible, desirable, or necessary?". I will also talk about Indigenous sense of art as inseperable from life; about art as extra-rational practice; (re)concilliation; and what constitutes Indigenous/non-Indigenous collaborations.
