Duane Linklater (Omaskêko Ininiwak from Moose Cree First Nation) explores the physical and theoretical structures of the museum in relation to the current and historical conditions of Indigenous people, their objects, and approach to materials. He articulates these explorations through sculpture, photography, film and video, installation, and text works. Linklater completed an MFA in Film and Video from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, New York. He was the 2013 Sobey Art Award winner, and the 2016 recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for Media Art. He has presented solo exhibitions at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University (2017); 80WSE Gallery in New York, and Mercer Union, Toronto (2016); Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake City (2015); and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2015). Linklater has been featured in group exhibitions in Montréal (2017), Seoul, Korea (2016), Toronto (2015), Vancouver, and Banf, Alberta.
