Tania Willard, Secwepemc Nation, works within the ideas around contemporary and traditional, employing knowledge and skills from the intersections between Aboriginal and other cultures. Through her ongoing project BUSH gallery, Willard seeks to collapse boundaries between artistic and curatorial practice by creating a space for dialogue, experimental practice and community engagement that contributes to and transforms the art world by Indigenous knowledges, traditions, aesthetics, performance and land use systems. Willard's curatorial work includes Beat Nation: Art Hip Hop and Aboriginal Culture, co-curated with Kathleen Ritter at the Vancouver Art Gallery. In 2016 Willard received the Hanatyshyn Foundation Award for Curatorial Excellence in Contemporary Art.
