Exhibits:


At the MMFA: Thought and Splendour of Indigenous Colombia - Portable Universe.

Interview:

Three experts on Art of Ancient Americas help us understand that there are lessons to be learned in the new exhibition: 'Portable Universe: Thought and Splendour of Indigenous Columbia'. The two curators from Los Angeles County Museum of Art spent time building relationships with the Arhuaco people of northern Columbia. They went to learn about the significance of some 900 items that were in the museum's possession. After nearly a decade, the Arhuaco are among the main partners in an exhibition designed to remind us all of kinship and our roles as stewards of the earth. Like in the actual exhibition, where music by Luis Fernando Franco Duque (Soundscape ©Museum Associates/LACMA) guides you to another world, this conversation will guide you to many other questions, especially those around collecting and exhibiting Ancient and contemporary Indigenous art and cultures.

Interview on CBC’s The Current:

Chinatowns across Canada have long been a vital community resource, but development and changing cultural patterns have put them under threat. We hear about the documentary Big Fight in Little Chinatown, which looks at a new generation’s efforts to save them.

Good news – a butterfly and a piano!


Butterfly loved by Churchill back in England after almost 100 years. Black-veined whites, thought to have died out in 1920s, have seemingly returned due to warmer climate.

Winston Churchill was such a fan of the black-veined white butterfly that he tried to reintroduce the extinct species into his back garden in the 1940s. Photograph: Adam Gor/Butterfly Conservation/PA
