Artist Talk: Archer Pechawis


The Artists in Our Midst Program presents

An Evening with Archer Pechawis
Tuesday, April 24, 2007
7 – 9 pm
free admission

Archer Pechawis is a media-integrated performing artist, New Media artist, writer, curator and
teacher. He has been creating solo performance works since 1984. His practice investigates
the intersection of Plains Cree culture and digital technology. Archer also works as a “First
Nations Stand-up Essayist” webmonkey, technician and MC.

Pechawis is fascinated with what he calls ‘transitional Cree culture’, the place where Cree
culture meets the onrush of millennial technology. He explores this fascination through
performance. He uses digital technologies in an attempt to locate and query this meeting
place, however fleeting. He describes his work as a temporary roadmap — signposts of
the moment, which he creates to share.

This special event takes place in the Conference Room of the Britannia Information Services Centre.
