One Response to 5th Oct 2013: Icône et icônographie dans l’art des Premières Nations/Icon and Iconography in First Nations Art

  1. Diana Perera says:

    The forum was enriched by the questions raised, the excellent preparatory essays of our contributors and the sacred and secular responses by the three artists that established the importance of the visual arts in Identity and cultural preservation.

    It had been our request that the panel open with the three singular voices of our guests, led by Professor Cornett on the subject employed. And that issues such as stereotypical representation,
    exclusion of representation, appropriation, and Iconic representation within the western framework of popular culture be explored. Although these histories were not developed on topic,
    the discourse stimulated by the perception and understanding of said given works invited dialogue on the methods of perception and the graphics therein. Refreshing.
