MIIJIM: Gardens as Art as Relations
This roundtable conversation will focus on how plants have been part of contemporary curatorial and artistic practices. The speakers will further consider care as an intrinsic part of working in relation with flora, plants and gardens.
Moderated by Anishinaabe artist and curator Lisa Myers, this conversation will open with a reflection by her on caring for Mike MacDonald’s Butterfly Garden works, and will follow with interventions by Mi’kmaq artist Ursula Johnson on language and medicines, scholar and curator Andrea Fatona on caring for gardens at times of global crisis, curator Crystal Mowry on curating gardens andThe Perennials, and artist Christina Battle who will expand on her ongoing project seeds are meant to disperse.
