Peter Morin is a Tahltan Nation artist, curator, and writer, who recently relocated from British Columbia to Brandon, Manitoba, where he joined the Visual and Aboriginal Arts Faculty at Brandon University. Morin studied art at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and completed his MFA at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in 2011. In both his artistic practice as well as his curatorial work, Morin’s practice-based research investigates the impact between Indigenous cultural-based practices and Western settler colonialism. This work, defined by Tahltan Nation epistemological production, often takes on the form of performance interventions and also includes object and picture making.
Morin has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions including Team Diversity Bannock and the World’s Largest Bannock Attempt, 2005; A return to the place where God outstretched his hand, 2007; performative works at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; 12 Making Objects AKA First Nations DADA (12 Indigenous Interventions), Open Space, Victoria, 2009; Peter Morin’s Museum, Satellite Gallery, Vancouver, 2011; and Circle, Urban Shaman, Winnipeg, 2011. In 2014, Morin was nominated for the Sobey Art Award.
