Curatorial Statement: 

Open Space welcomes back Tahltan Nation performance artist Peter Morin to present the Tahltan Song Cycle, a performance and exhibition that examines the power of traditional songs and their eventual repatriation to the land that inspired their creation. 

The Tahltan Song Cycle began with an archive of Tahltan Songs, recorded in 1910 and stored at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. For the past two years, Morin has been performing and singing these songs around the world as acts of repatriation. Video works, along with other representations, will accompany a new performance of the songs at Open Space.

Join us on Friday, June 19, 2015 at 7pm for the opening reception of the Tahltan Song Cycle exhibition along with a special performance by Morin at 8:00 p.m.
