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 artistic and curatorial work has included projects for organizations such as Critical Mass Centre for Contemporary Art, Lougheed House National Historic Site, the National Music Centre, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, and Two Rivers Gallery, 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 Fort Calgary National Historic Site, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, Wide Skies Music & Arts Festival, and the BC Museums Association, among others.
