THIRZA CUTHAND: NDN SURVIVAL TRILOGY and other works

Thirza Cuthand, 2013-2021, digital video

Plains Cree/Scots artist Thirza Cuthand explores queer sexuality, Indigenous identity, and forms of personal and collective crisis in her defiantly DIY videos, performances, and autobiographical writings. For this program, Cuthand will appear in person to introduce and discuss her "NDN Survival Trilogy,” a recent series of videos that address the impacts of colonialism, resource extraction, and climate change through the artist’s distinctly intimate and irreverent voice.

Presented in conjunction with Northwestern’s Art, Theory and Practice department, the Climate Crisis and Media Arts working group, and One Book One Northwestern.
