Centre for Continuing Education Heritage Lecture

Media Advisory Release Date: April 19, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Media are invited to attend the Centre for Continuing Education’s 2016 Heritage Lecture with guest speaker Dr. Carmen Robertson, associate professor in the Department of Visual Arts at University of Regina.

Robertson teaches art history while her research centers on contemporary Indigenous arts with a specific focus on the art of Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau, constructions of Indigeneity in popular culture, and investigating the pedagogy of art histories. She has two new books out this April: Mythologizing Norval Morrisseau: Art and the Colonial Narrative in the Canadian Media and Norval Morrisseau: Art and Life.

In her lecture, entitled: “How to Track a Shaman Artist”, Robertson will talk about the process, pitfalls and epiphanies of writing these books.

The Heritage Lecture will take place:

Wednesday, April 20, 2016
7:00 p.m.
Gallery Building, Room 126
College Avenue Campus (2155 College Avenue)
