Indigenous artists are giving visual form to our deep continuity with the animal relations we have relied upon for countless generations. Join us at Tate Liverpool for this talk which will explore Canadian visual culture and how this relates to the works in this year's Liverpool Biennial. Art Historian Sherry Farrell Racette will position the artworks within the context of First Nations art in Canada and situate it with other current debates.

Dr Sherry Farrell Racette is an interdisciplinary scholar with an active arts and curatorial practice. Her work is grounded in story: stories of people, stories that objects tell, painting stories, telling stories and finding stories. She has done extensive work in archives and museum collections with an emphasis on retrieving women's voices and recovering knowledge. Most recently she was cross-appointed to the Departments of Native Studies and Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Manitoba. Farrell Racette also had an extensive career in Saskatchewan education, working at SUNTEP Regina (GDI), First Nations University of Canada, and the University of Regina.
