Please join Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) for an afternoon of guided exhibition tours with Pauline Goutain, one of the co-curators of Imaginary Worlds: Scottie Wilson and Art Brut, and Lisa Truong, curator of Inuit Art: Skin Deep. Goutain will be speaking about Scottie Wilson’s reception in Europe, where he was characterized by Jean Dubuffet as exemplary of art brut (“raw” or “rough” art). Truong will talk about the enormous importance of skins and skin clothing in Inuit culture, past and present.

Pauline Goutain is a current PhD candidate in Art History and Cultural Mediations at Carleton University, in co-tutorship with Université Paris X Nanterre. After graduating from the École du Louvre in 2010, where her dissertation focused on a forgotten author of art brut, Simon Marye, she taught at the school until 2013. Her current research focuses more generally on the notion of format in art brut.

Lisa Truong\'s research interests include Inuit and Cree visual and material culture; and issues of colonization and sovereignty particularly in the context of collaborative museology. She is a PhD candidate in the Cultural Mediations program at Carleton University and her current research focuses on the contemporary role of indigenous cultural institutions in bridging distant regional communities.
