Materials will be considered as willful agents within artistic processes across key moments in history by tracing the flow of wampum from the east coast, recognizing the shift from shell to glass during the fur trade up to the emergence of digital experimentation. The introduction of multiple modernities structures the shift from art historical framings of form over matter and connoisseurship to viewing materiality as an active process that continues to map larger social processes and transformation. Archives will be sites of investigation across varied Indigenous geographies marking place, space, bodies and land.
