Playing with concepts of memory keeping, these artists encode, store and retrieve knowledge of the land, language, and cultural practices. Memory Keepers III | Nujimikwite’taqatijik III is a series of site specific, 
experimental, collaborative media art installations created by eight Indigenous artists during two art incubators curated by GLAM Collective. Their artwork translates and transmits Indigenous knowledge for future generations.

Moana

GLAM
ART WORK






















Indigenous peoples have drawn connections across vast distances, continents, and bodies of water for thousands of years, revealing the space between us as potential site for sharing knowledge, experience, and technology. Working from the Pacific view of water (moana and va) as a mode of connection between islands, and by extension, Turtle Island (North America), these exhibitions will explore the transference of ideas through various media across geographic distances, timespans, and cultures. Together these artists delve into the sharing of knowledge and postulate locations of connection in the future, including imagined concepts of place.
