Tyler J Stewart is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, writer, scholar and consultant of settler descent, living and working on Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot) territory in the city of Lethbridge. His current research focuses on the role of sound within the ongoing structure of settler-colonialism in Canada, and how artists use sound as a form of resistance and refusal against imbalances of power. Working across sectors from music to museums to magazines, he is interested in fostering multi-disciplinary collaboration to inspire new events and experiences that encourage participation, and are meaningful to the communities from which they originate.
His curatorial work includes projects with the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the National Music Centre, and the Galt Museum & Archives, and his writing has been published in outlets such as Galleries West, BeatRoute, LUMA, and Canadian Cycling Magazine. He has provided consulting services for a variety of non-profit organizations including Wide Skies Music & Arts Festival, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, and the Alberta Museums Association, among others.
