Join AGO Artist in Residence Tanya Lukin Linklater in conversation with Wanda Nanibush, Assistant Curator, Canadian and Indigenous Art, to discuss the work of Rita Letendre and Lukin Linklater’s performance-based response to the exhibition Rita Letendre: Fire and Light.
Tanya Lukin Linklater is an Alutiiq artist and choreographer who combines dance, music and text into moving explorations of space, bodies and relationships. From August 9 — 18, 2017, Lukin Linklater will be the AGO’s Artist in Residence.
While in residence, Lukin Linklater will work with dancers inside the exhibition Rita Letendre: Fire and Light to stage a performance, titled Sun Force, in response to Letendre’s powerful work. Visitors to the AGO are welcome to view Tanya and dancers Ceinwen Gobert and Danah Rosales in process through a series of open rehearsals that will take place inside the exhibition during gallery hours. The final performance will begin at 7 pm on Friday, August 18.
