Aboriginal Digital Access Project
Toronto: Vtape, 2012
VTape's Aboriginal Digital Access Project was founded by Deirdre Logue and Chris Gehman to make the work of Indigenous artists more accessible to the public. Unsettling Sex is the first public outcome of this program, where John G Hampton was invited to create a programme of these works of his own.
This programme offers an in-depth look into Indigenous sexualities through the work of Kent Monkman, Jams Diamond, Marnie Parrell and Ariel Smith. The aim of this programme is to bring to the surface the fruitful and underdeveloped area of indigenous sexualities in artistic exploration.
