June 17 from 10 am – 2 pm
In Remediating Curtis, Stephen Foster explores the legacy of the film and photographic work of ethnographer Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952), famous for his depictions of First Nations in the early 1900s, and
his influence on popular images of ‘Indianness’ in contemporary culture. The
wide-spread distribution of Curtis’ photographs in the 1920s and 30s, and later in the 1960s and 70s, and circulation of his film
In the Land of the Head Hunters helped to perpetuate a concept of a singular North American ‘Indian’ which persists in popular culture to this day, defying the reality of the diversity of indigenous cultures in North America.
The opening evening will be a special event with noted local poet, Griffin-award winner Jordan Abel on hand for a reading.
