Curators, scholars, and researchers Liisa-Ravna Finbog, Biung Ismahasan, Việt Lê, and Annie Jael Kwan discuss their work on the Sámi Pavilion and (People of Remarkable Talents) PORT Perak Pera + Flora + Fauna at the 59th Venice Biennale. The panelists will discuss Trans-Indigenous art practices, global networks, and “invisible” archives that sit outside the value system of the colonial archive. John Tain chairs this panel, which will also explore the themes of community, care, healing, and relationships to the environment.

The virtual panel will stream live from PORT Perak Pera + Flora + Fauna at the Archivi della Misericordia in Venice and is a part of the Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange (GAX).
