Friends of Art History Visual Culture Lecture Series 2018-2019: Notes to A Nation: Thinking about Land Claiming through the Art of Norval Morrisseau.

Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau routinely painted works that visualized his complex relationship to the land. While Canada’s colonial actions directly inspired him to paint political works in the 1970s, typically Morrisseau avoided direct political expressions. Still, one can discern a passion, even an activist’s vision for the stewardship of Mother Earth in his oeuvre and this talk engages with three such works.
