The next installment of the GVSU Arts Celebration will be a three-day series of events with an artist and filmmaker whose work is described as being "rooted in Indigenous narratives that look forward to new and reimagined Indigenous futures."
Adam Khalil, a member of the Ojibwe tribe who is from Sault Ste. Marie, will be featured in the series of events named "Segaajigewin." The series, which runs from February 20-22, will offer multiple opportunities to interact both with Khalil and his art. All events are free and open to the public.
Khalil's work has been exhibited in institutions that include the Museum of Modern Art, Sundance Film Festival, Lincoln Center and Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit.
"With the series of events 'Segaajigewin,' we hope to create opportunities for the community to engage and consider Indigenous cosmologies and to imagine new ways of living together in this place," said Paul Wittenbraker, professor and chair of the Visual and Media Studies Department. "Adam's work introduces dynamic ideas and forms that point to new relational realities."
