-St. Catharines, ON-
Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Art Practice
Brock University

Brock University is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenoshaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work in St. Catharines and the Niagara region. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement.

Brock University is committed to building inclusivity and equity through understanding and respect for diverse identities, and to reflecting this in our approaches to teaching and learning, research and creativity, administration and service provision, and community engagement. Our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is grounded in the recognition that the strongest research, scholarship, and creative activity and the best research training environment require engagement of scholars from diverse backgrounds. Consistent with Brock University’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Plan, in recognition of the underrepresentation of members of the federally designated groups in the Canada Research Chairs program, and pursuant to Section 14 of the Ontario Human Rights Code, this position will be filled by a qualified candidate who self-identifies as an Indigenous/Aboriginal person.

Job Summary

Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (MIWSFPA) invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Indigenous Art Practice at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The start date for this position can be as early as January 1, 2020, but is negotiable with the Faculty Dean.

Brock University has sought to address in meaningful and sustainable ways the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. Courses and workshops offered by the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education, Aboriginal Student Services, the Office of Human Rights and Equity, and the Faculty of Education have helped incorporate Indigenous world views, traditions, history and current affairs in the Brock community. Ongoing initiatives also support and sustain our Indigenous students, staff and faculty, and build bridges between the university and the larger Indigenous community. Brock has an active Aboriginal Education Council, a Two Row/One Dish One Spoon Council, and recently hired its first Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement. The arts play a pivotal role in Brock’s realization of the values of reconciliation and decolonization, and the CRC in Indigenous Art Practice responds directly to this priority.

The CRC in Indigenous Art Practice will be appointed to one or more of the School’s academic units, depending on the successful applicant’s area(s) of knowledge and expertise. We recognize that in Indigenous art there may be no formal divisions between visual, theatrical, and musical art forms. Brock embraces diverse perspectives and practice approaches; it is hoped that the CRC in Indigenous Art Practice will help foster new collaborations across academic units and assist the School and university to move towards Indigenization. The CRC will be welcomed into a tight-knit, friendly, and dynamic community of artists, scholars, staff, and students that respects, promotes, and actively engages with Indigenous arts and culture within the University and Indigenous communities.

Our ideal candidate will be  an  innovative  Indigenous  arts  practitioner  and  researcher  whose  work engages in one or  more  artistic  forms  with  Indigenous  communities  and  a  leader  in  new  Indigenous arts-based research and methodologies. The candidate will hold knowledge and expertise in one or more of the following areas in relation to Indigenous art practice: musical, dramatic, and/or visual culture and performance; curatorial practice; arts protocols; aesthetics; relationships to land, knowledge transmission, and cultural production; arts and Indigenous health, healing, and wellness; Indigenous resistance, resilience, and resurgence; impact of transnational contact on Indigenous artistic expression; influence of Indigenous artistic expression on non-Indigenous societies; global indigeneity; anti-colonial and decolonizing theories and practices.

In addition to research and artistic production in the MIWSFPA, the CRC in Indigenous Art Practice will offer important learning, research and art-making opportunities for Indigenous students, and opportunities for non-Indigenous students to learn about Indigenous art practice through Indigenous perspectives. Ideally, the CRC will work collaboratively with faculty members in the MIWSFPA and possibly in other academic units at Brock, including Communication, Popular Culture and Film; Digital Humanities; and Interactive Arts and Science. The CRC will have the opportunity to supervise or mentor Indigenous and non-Indigenous graduate students, in particular those in the MA in Studies in Comparative Literature and Arts (SCLA) and the PhD in Interdisciplinary Humanities (HUMA). Other opportunities include developing and strengthening the MIWSFPA and Brock’s community partnerships and contributing to building the reputation of MIWSFPA and Brock as a centre of innovative, creative practice.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • MFA or PhD or equivalent combinations of qualifications, experience, and professional contributions.
  • The successful candidate will be an outstanding emerging Indigenous artist/scholar with a demonstrated potential to achieve a significant international reputation in the next five to ten years.
  • The successful candidate must self-identify as an Indigenous/Aboriginal person, in accordance with the Collective Agreement between Brock University and the Brock University Faculty Association, and is expected to have lived experience of Indigenous world views, cultures and values.

About the Canada Research Chair Program

The Canada Research Chairs program recognizes outstanding scholars at all career stages and is a key mechanism for Canadian universities to attract and retain the best talent from around the world to achieve excellence in research and research training. Canada Research Chairs advance the frontiers of knowledge in their fields through their scholarly research, teaching, and supervision.  Tier  2 Canada Research Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars, typically those who have been active researchers in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks  exist, such as maternity, parental, or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility  for  a  Tier  2  Chair  assessed  through  the  program’s  Tier  2  justification  process.  Please contact Nicole Perry, Consultant at Leaders International (nicole@leadersinternational.com) for more information. Differing career patterns may be more common among members of designated groups, and those who have experienced leaves from the workplace. These differences will be taken into account in assessing the experiences and qualifications of applicants.

The appointment is subject to budgetary approval. Nominations for Canada Research Chairs are subject to review and final approval by the CRC Secretariat. Benefits associated with Chair appointments include teaching release and a research stipend.

THE CITY: Toronto

The name Toronto is derived from a Mohawk word “tkaronto,” which means “where there are trees standing in the water.” It is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, along with other Indigenous groups that represent this valued community.

Toronto has a population of 2.8 million people making it the largest city in Canada, the fourth-largest city in North America, one of the top 25 cities globally for its quality of living, and the best place to live in Canada, according to MoneySense. Toronto welcomes 40 million tourists a year. It supports a lively art and culture scene that includes museums, galleries, performing art organizations, and many festivals (including the Indigenous Art Festival). Toronto is recognized as one of the most diverse and multi-cultural cities in the world.

Toronto is the home to Ontario’s Parliament Buildings as well as multiple post-secondary institutions – the University of Toronto (the largest university in Canada), Ryerson University, York University, OCAD University, Humber College, and George Brown College.

Toronto schools reflect the diversity of the population. The four school boards – English public, French public, English Roman Catholic and French Roman Catholic – provide many options, including French immersion programs. There are also several private, secular and religious, schools and boarding schools.

The Royal Ontario Museum is an iconic building boasting the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal inspired by the ROM’s extensive gem and mineral collection, the design was quickly dubbed the ‘crystal’ because of its crystalline shape. The Royal Ontario Museum has a unique 100-year history of conducting ground-breaking research in all areas of art, culture, and nature.

Just offshore from the city centre are the Toronto Islands known as ‘Menecing’, meaning “On the Island” in the Ojibwa language. The islands are home to parklands and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The island community is considered the largest urban car-free community in North America.

-Toronto-
Director / Curator
Art Gallery of York University

The AGYU is located at one of Canada’s most multi-cultural universities situated in the vibrant Greater Toronto Area. The Gallery is a steward of great art and acts as a community hub attracting internal and external members alike. The AGYU also provides opportunities for collaboration with York’s School of Art, Media, Performance and Design as well as other faculties on campus.

Exhibitions take place in the main gallery, a state-of-the-art, climate controlled, fully-wired, 3000 square foot gallery space opened in 2006; in the three vitrines located in the colonnade along the front entrance of the gallery; on school buses and alternative sites; and at other art institutions, galleries, and community spaces reflecting the commitment to community engagement for which York is known. Discussions are also underway for expansion.
In addition to the exhibition of York’s art collections, the AGYU partners with local, national, and international artists in commissioning new work and purpose-built exhibition design.  Current artists criss-cross the Americas: from the USA with Postcommodity to Brazil with Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Búrca, and to Mexico with Betsabeé Romero.

The AGYU is also known for its research and stage actions that intentionally inhabit the civic spaces that surround the gallery, opening the GTA to new kinds of possibilities for movement and agency, not to mention diasporic performativity. In this context, the AGYU serves a pedagogical role with the individuals and groups engaged in the activities of the gallery. Hundreds of classes are conducted in the gallery, and the “gallery” goes out to departments across the University, inflecting curricula with contemporary art. Today, the AGYU is considered a leader in experiential learning at York. Ultimately, the AGYU aspires to showcase the potential of what art galleries can be in universities – a place that brings people together while increasing accessibility to art.

Now, we are seeking a new Director / Curator who will identify and lead new strategic opportunities and continue to highlight and increase public access to the AGYU.

Reporting to the Provost & Vice-President Academic, the Director/Curator of the Art Gallery of York University is responsible for the artistic vision of the Gallery, including policies relating to collections, acquisitions and donations, managing the Gallery’s operations and budgets, and, in consultation with the AGYU Advisory Board, developing, organizing and promoting an exhibition program and ancillary events consistent with the mandate of the AGYU. As Director/Curator, you will not only provide artistic direction, you will oversee the management, care, development, dissemination and maintenance of the permanent collection as well as all new acquisitions to further enhance the AGYU’s reputation. As the chief ambassador for the gallery locally, nationally, and internationally, maintain and build upon the gallery's public image and its relationships with the university, gallery members, artists, donors, patrons, partners, stakeholders, and the general public.

As the ideal candidate, you bring significant experience in the management and curatorial work of a public museum or art gallery. Your relevant graduate degree and sound budgetary and business management skills are paired with your ability to develop and implement a strategic vision and innovative programs to showcase AGYU’s collections and exhibits. You are well versed in standard and current museological procedures, practices and techniques, have well developed critical and aesthetic discrimination, and possess the ability to develop appropriate exhibition installations. You will also be expected to lead plans for the expansion of the physical space. The ability to build partnerships and collaborations and the capacity to lead and communicate within an academic environment and the museum and art communities is a must. Practical art school training and experience teaching art history, museology or curatorial practice would be considered an asset.

York University is an Affirmative Action (AA) employer and strongly values diversity, including gender and sexual diversity, within its community. The Affirmative Action Program can be found at http://yorku.ca/acadjobs or by calling the AA office at 416-736-5713.
