We came across a new site yesterday, Aboriginal Underground Art Crawl 2009. It looks very exciting:
Marlaina Buch is a Victoria curator and artist. The Aboriginal Underground Art Crawl was started as a way for her to address her own ignorance surrounding Aboriginal art and culture and in response to difficulties her peers were experiencing in navigating the gallery system. Her interest in Aboriginal art stems from her childhood in Thunder Bay and contact with the Anishnaabe community there. A strong committment to the do-it-yourself ethos permeates her curatorial and artistic practice and continues to drive her civic engagement.
For more information see the resources section, Aboriginal Underground Art Crawl 2009 listing.
Please note this is for Canadian Aboriginal art in Victoria, British Columbia, but we thought it was such a good idea it was worth publicising here!
