This endowed lectureship was initiated in 1997 by family and friends to celebrate Janet E. Hutchison’s birthday. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto

A little more than a year ago Richard Hill began research for a book on Contemporary Indigenous Art from 1980 to 1995. In March of this year he began a regular column on the Canadian Art website through which he aspired to “think out loud in public about questions and controversies arising” from this research. This talk will simultaneously address the primary motivations for undertaking this research, why he attempted to make parts of the research process public in advance of the completion of the book and what it has been like to do so.
