Unceded Territories



A few weeks ago Museum of Anthropology curator Karen Duffek emailed to say that the Unceded Territories catalogue that she and exhibition co-curator Tania Willard devised and edited is nominated for a City of Vancouver Book Award.

As a contributor to -- and a reader of -- Unceded Territories (the other contributors are Glenn Alteen, Jimmie Durham and Lucy Lippard), I am happy to hear of its selection alongside The Revolving City by Wayde Compton and RenĂ©e Sarojini Saklikar and The Lonely Section of Hell by Larimer Sheather. Yuxweluptun is an important artist, and Karen, Tania and Figure.1 Publishing were a pleasure to work with.

Unfortunately I am unable to attend the October 3 awards ceremony at Vancouver's Roundhouse, as I am committed to a UBC Okanagan lecture by another artist whose importance to our cultural ecology cannot be overstated.
