Barbara Powell Distinguished Lecture featuring Dr. Gerald McMaster

The University of Regina's Humanities Research Institute Barbara Powell Distinguished Lecturer for 2015 is Dr. Gerald McMaster, Professor in Indigenous Visual Culture & Curatorial Studies at OCAD University in Toronto. Originally from Red Pheasant First Nations in Saskatchewan, McMaster obtained his MA in Anthropology from Carleton University, and a PhD from the University of Amsterdam's School for Cultural Analysis. In 1979, at the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College (now the First Nations University of Canada) in Regina, he developed the first Bachelor of Art (Native Art) program. For the past thirty years, he has worked as a visual artist, curator, and scholar to increase the knowledge and appreciation of First Nation, M├ętis, and Inuit art, nationally and internationally. In his role as senior curator at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Smithsonian Institute, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the Art Gallery of Ontario, Dr. McMaster achieved an international reputation as a curator with independent projects at the Venice Biennale, the Sydney Biennale, and numerous pivotal exhibitions mounted throughout North America and Europe.
