Win Passes to the MOA for Amazonia: The Rights of Nature

Comments 22 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Museum of Anthropology (“MOA”) at UBC presents the thought provoking, socially and environmentally conscious new exhibition Amazonia: The Rights of Nature, on display March 10, 2017 to January 28, 2018.

Amazonia: The Rights of Nature

Where: Museum of Anthropology (UBC, 6393 NW Marine Drive)
When: March 10, 2017 to January 28, 2018

The exhibition features Amazonian basketry, textiles, carvings, feather works and ceramics both of everyday and ceremonial use, representing Indigenous, Maroon and white settler communities. Today, these groups articulate against threats caused by political violence, mining, oil and gas exploration, industrial agriculture, forest fires, and hydroelectric plants. The exhibition covers more than 100 years of unsuspected relationships between Vancouver and Amazonian peoples, ideas, and their struggles, challenging visitors to examine their own notions of holistic well-being.

The objects displayed in Amazonia: The Rights of Nature have been exclusively assembled from MOA’s collection of acquisitions and donations. Included amongst the exhibition are items from Frank Burnett’s founding collection, donated to the University of British Columbia in 1927, ensuring the exhibition spans more than 100 years of exchange between Vancouver and Amazonian peoples.
