Telling Stories on Canvas: Norval Morrisseau’s Visual Narratives

From the website: »
Aboriginal artist Norval Morrisseau whose entrance onto the Canadian art scene in 1962 introduced a unique artistic language steeped in Anishinaabe cultural traditions. Melding oral narratives, personal storytelling, and a visual language that draws on Indigenous visual elements, Morrisseau’s art serves as a hybrid form of visual narratives that draw on a range of influences in order to shape stories on canvas that reach back to the past, take from the present, and exert a transformative influence on the future.  This lecture discusses works by Morrisseau that confirm the importance of narrative in his art and acknowledge the multi-layered stories embedded in his artwork.
