Stop by the Belkin to pick up a guide to Musqueam house posts on campus, researched and written by Jordan Wilson. As part of a larger initiative to animate outdoor artworks, this guide describes how the house posts are markers of Musqueam’s relationship with its territory through time, particularly with the land that is now commonly known as UBC. Jordan Wilson is a Vancouver-based emerging curator and writer, and was Curatorial Intern (2017/18) at the Belkin Art Gallery. He is a member of the Musqueam First Nation, whose traditional, ancestral and unceded territory encompasses what is now Vancouver.
This guide is made possible with the support of the BC | Canada 150: Celebrating BC Communities and their Contributions to Canada Fund and the Association of Administrative and Professional Staff at UBC. The Belkin acknowledges the ongoing support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of British Columbia through the BC Arts Council and our Belkin Curator’s Forum members. Jordan Wilson’s Curatorial Internship at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery is made possible through the BC Arts Council Early Career Development Program.
