Presented in partnership with British Council Wales, Artes Mundi presents our free At The Table talks series for AM10.
Taloi Havini will be in conversation with Wanda Nanibush, Curator of Indigenous Art and co-head of the Indigenous & Canadian Art Department at Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Toronto and writer, musician Leanne Betasamosake Simpson.
The At The Table series brings together the voices of the seven AM10 artists alongside those of international curators, artists, historians, thinkers and writers in a series of roundtable discussions. The talks will centre on themes and ideas present in the artist’s work and the interwoven relationship between histories and practices, locally to internationally.
Imagining we are sitting around a table sharing conversation and exchanging ideas, this event is a chance to hear different concerns and perspectives while getting to know the artist and their work.
The talk will be interpreted in BSL and live captions will be provided.
