Museum of Anthropology at UBC presents Amazonia


Sunday, April 30, 2017     10:00 AM

Museum of Anthropology at UBC, 6393 NW Marine Drive Vancouver, BC , Vancouver Locate on the map



The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC presents the thought-provoking, socially and environmentally-conscious new exhibition Amazonia: The Rights of Nature, on display March 10, 2017 – January 28, 2018. Curated by Dr. Nuno Porto (MOA Curator, Africa and Latin America), Amazonia explores the creative ideas that inspire Indigenous resistance to threats facing the world’s largest rainforest. The exhibition features Amazonian basketry, textiles, carvings, feather works and ceramics both of everyday and of ceremonial use, representing Indigenous, Maroon and white settler communities. Today, these groups confront threats caused by political violence, mining, oil and gas exploration, industrial agriculture, forest fires, and hydroelectric plants. Challenging visitors to examine their own notions towards holistic well-being, the exhibition covers more than 100 years of unsuspected relationships between Vancouver and Amazonian peoples, ideas, and their struggles.

Opening Celebration: Thursday, March 9, 7-10pm. Free admission.
