Indigenous B.C. architects contribute to UNCEDED at Venice Biennale – The Georgia Straight

May 25th, 2018

Canada’s first Indigenous-led submission to the Venice Biennale in Architecture opens tomorrow (May 26) to the public–and it features a strong presence from B.C. talent.

Commissioned by the Canada Council for the Arts for the world’s most prestigious international architecture competition, UNCEDED: Voices of the Land is an immersive audio-visual experience featuring the work of 18 Indigenous architects and designers from Turtle Island (Canada and the U.S.).

The installation tackles issues of colonialism while celebrating Indigenous resilience and the Indigenous worldview as it relates to architecture in all its diverse forms, drawing on talents who trace their heritage back to a variety of First Nations.

UBC-educated Douglas Cardinal presents the exhibit, which is curated by Gerald McMaster and David Fortin.
