Peter Morin completed his studies at both Emily Carr University of Art + Design (BFA 2000) and at University of British Columbia Okanagan (MFA 2011). In his artistic practice, as well as his curatorial work, Morin’s practice-based research investigates the impact zones between indigenous cultural-based practices and western settler colonialism. This work often takes on the form of performance interventions and also includes object making. Morin has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions including Team Diversity Bannock and the World’s Largest Bannock attempt (2005), A return to the place where God outstretched his hand (2007); 12 Making Objects AKA First Nations DADA (12 Indigenous Interventions) (2009) at Open Space, Victoria; Peter Morin’s Museum (2011); and Circle (2011) Urban Shaman, Winnipeg. In addition to his art making and performance-based practice, Morin has curated exhibitions at the Museum of Anthropology, Western Front, Bill Reid Gallery, and Burnaby Art Gallery. Morin joined the Visual and Aboriginal Arts faculty in 2014. Peter Morin is a member of the Tahltan Nation and lives in Brandon MB.
