    WHAT WE DO AT HOME: PDX > AKL

     

    19 Apr 2018 – 1 Jun 2018

    St Paul Street Gallery
    Auckland

     

    In 2017 Cora-Allan Wickliffe and Daniel Twiss launched the BC Collective. BC stands for ‘Before Cook and Before Columbus’, and was initiated as a way to share, directly engage with and exchange indigenous ideas and concepts. BC Collective will hold the Gallery One space for ‘What we do at home: PDX > AKL’, during which a one-day symposium will be held with invited guests.

     

    Cora-Allan Wickliffe (Ngāpuhi, Tainui, Alofi and Liku) is a multidisciplinary artist of Māori and Niuean descent, originally from Waitakere. Her practice often examines constructed identifies of indigenous people, finding new ways to provide educative experiences through social art platforms. 

     

    Daniel Twiss (Lakota, Sioux, Rosebud Reservation) was raised in Vancouver, Washington. His family relocated for a year to the Coeur D’alene Indian Reservation in Plummer, Idaho. His late father Richard Twiss was the co-founder of the Wiconi organisation and a Professor of Native American Studies at Portland State University. Under his influence, Daniel took up Grass Dancing and joined the International Dancing our Prayers Tour in 2003, which created the platform for his involvement in Indigenous conferences and gatherings.
