Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is excited to host a live, in house presentation of Good Evening Native America! Live with Darryl Nepinak. On Thursday, February 15 at 7pm, join us for this rare and much anticipated live appearance.
Bask in the brilliance of our current exhibition Sweetgrass and Honey by Skeena Reece while Nepinak banters with special celebrity guests, not including Gord and Lorrie Steeves and Senator Lynn Beyak. This is one night you do not want to miss!
Daryl Nepinak is a Winnipeg-based writer, filmmaker, committed youth mentor and educator, occasional curator and performer. Addressing the social structures of racism, Nepinak is unapologetic, absurd and precise. Primarily known for his edgy, satirical videos, Nepinak was introduced to filmmaking at the Aboriginal Broadcasting Training Initiative in 2005 where he produced his first short, Last of the Nepinaks, 2005. Since then his work has been shown nationally and internationally including screenings at Plug In ICA, Winnipeg; The Harbourfront Centre, Toronto; Dawson City Film Festival; the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), New York; the Berlinale International Film Festival, Berlin; Wairoa Maori Film Festival, New Zealand. ImagineNative Film and media Arts festival commissioned Zwei Indianer Aus Winnipeg in 2008, a satire that uses the song by German musician Marika Kilius. Nepinak has also worked with APTN and the National Film Board. More info here.
