A continuation of the exploration In Good Taste which seeks to answer the question: What does it mean to have truly good taste in the modern world? This intimate conversation will look to the perspectives of cultural knowledge keepers, who bring with them an understanding of how a sense of place, and personal history, should inform our choices.

Peter Morin is a Tahltan Nation artist, curator, and writer. In his artistic practice and curatorial work, Morin’s practice-based research investigates the impact zones that occur when indigenous cultural-based practices and western settler colonialism collide. This work is shaped by Tahltan Nation epistemological production and often takes on the form of performance interventions. In addition to his object making and performance-based practice, Morin has curated exhibitions at the Museum of Anthropology, Western Front, Bill Reid Gallery, and Burnaby Art Gallery. In 2014, Peter was long-listed for the Sobey Art Prize.
