To Fish As Formerly artist interview series
What role can art play in eco-cultural revitalization?
Find out in a new exhibit at Legacy Art Galleries. To Fish As Formerly tells the story of the efforts of generations of W̱SÁNEĆ people who are revitalizing the belief systems, spirituality, knowledge and practices inherent to the SX̱OLE (reef net fishery). The topic is explored through contemporary art, traditional knowledge and historical documentation.
Can’t make it to the gallery in person? A new interview series with the same name features local emerging artists Temoseng aka Chasz Elliott, Sarah Jim and Colton Hash. Hear how art can be a research tool, connect us with community knowledge and allow us to explore new perspectives.
Check out one of the interviews below and see the others on UVic’s Legacy Art Galleries YouTube channel.
