$5 Handshake: Art on Treaty 8 Territory
Burnaby, Canada: SFU Galleries, 2018
125 pp., 5" x 7 3/4”, softcover

Edition size unknown



This is the fourth publication in the SFU Galleries Critical Reader Series. A corollary to the group exhibition Maps and Dreams (Audain Gallery, June 1 - July 29, 2017), this publication takes up concepts and implications of land use through cultural and industrial lenses, specifically in relationship to the territory of the Dane-zaa people of northeastern British Columbia, now in Treaty 8. New texts by artist Brenda Draney, researcher Kate Hennessy, curator Candice Hopkins, and the exhibition curators, Brian Jungen and Melanie O'Brian, as well as a reprinted chapter from Hugh Brody's 1981 anthropological study Maps and Dreams connect the personal to regional and global contexts.
