VANCOUVER.- The Vancouver Art Gallery announced the appointment of Vancouver-based writer and curator Tarah Hogue as the Gallery’s first Senior Curatorial Fellow, focussing on Indigenous Art. Tarah Hogue, who is of Métis/French Canadian and Dutch ancestry, will begin her position in September, 2017. This fellowship was initiated to bring diverse perspectives to the Gallery’s curatorial team, and to examine and re-contextualize the colonial legacy of the institution.

Tarah Hogue’s curatorial practice aims to decentre institutional space and history. Using collaborative methodologies and a careful attentiveness to place, Hogue has been an active researcher of Indigenous knowledge. She grounds her own practice within a consideration of Indigenous feminisms, re/conciliation and cultural resurgence.

“The Vancouver Art Gallery is honoured to welcome Tarah Hogue as the Gallery’s first Senior Curatorial Fellow. The Gallery will benefit from Tarah’s extensive work on Indigenous projects with artists from across the country. This fellowship affirms our ongoing commitment to innovative, scholarly and engaging exhibitions featuring Indigenous art,” says Gallery Director, Kathleen S. Bartels.

Born in Red Deer, Alberta, Hogue completed her Bachelor of Art History at Queen’s University in 2008 and received a Master of Art History degree in Critical Curatorial Studies at the University of British Columbia in 2012. Her most recent position has been Curator at grunt gallery in Vancouver (2014-17).

Recent curatorial projects include #callresponse, a series of locally responsive art commissions centering on Indigenous women and artists accompanied by a touring exhibition; Unsettled Sites (2016), a group exhibition at SFU Gallery that highlighted the complexity of belonging and refusal from both settler and Indigenous perspectives; and Cutting Copper: Indigenous Resurgent Practice (2016), a collaboration between grunt gallery and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery that brought together performance art with a panel of Indigenous theorists and curators for the exhibition Lalakenis/All Directions: A Journey of Truth and Unity by Kwakwaka’wakw artist Beau Dick. Hogue was a co-organizer of Intertextual: Art in Dialogue (2016), a roving reading group series and What’s at Stake? Intertextual Indigenous Knowledges (2016), an afternoon of talks, panels and a spoken word performances that examined knowledge, power, authority and sovereignty in the construction of artistic practices.

Previous projects by Hogue include Witnesses: Art and Canada’s Indian Residential Schools (2013) at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, co-curated with Geoffrey Carr, Dana Claxton, Shelly Rosenblum, Charlotte Townsend-Gault, Keith Wallace and Scott Watson.

Tarah Hogue was the 2016 Audain Aboriginal Curatorial Fellow at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. As a writer, she has also contributed to several publications, including BlackFlash Magazine, Canadian Art, Decoy Magazine, Inuit Art Quarterly and MICE Magazine.
