Paul Seesequasis: Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun

Friday October 25, 2019

Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun: Portraits of Everyday Life in Eight Indigenous Communities is a revelatory portrait of Indigenous communities from the 1920s through the 1970s, shown through never-before published archival photographs. Join writer and journalist Paul Seesequasis in conversation with AGO curator of Indigenous Art Wanda Nanibush. Peter Pitseolak is a featured artist in the book and you can see his work on Level 2 in the Bovey gallery.

Paul Seesequasis is a nîpisîhkopâwiyiniw (Willow Cree) writer, journalist, cultural advocate and commentator currently residing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Since 2015, he has curated the Indigenous Archival Photo Project, an online and physical exhibition of archival Indigenous photographs that explores history, identity and the process of visual reclamation. His writing has appeared in The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, Brick and Granta magazines, among others. He has been active in the Indigenous arts, both as an artist and a policy maker, since the 1990s.
