Dr. Marcia V. Crosby is a cultural historian whose PhD in Art History, Cultural Studies and Theory (UBC, Fall, 2016), focuses inter-tribal and inter-First Nations liaisons in urban spaces, circa late 19th and early 20th century. This theme extends early curatorial work, Nations in Urban Landscapes: Faye HeavyShield, Eric Robertson, Shelley Niro, and the texts, “Nations in Urban Landscapes” and “Lines, Lineage and Lies, or Borders, Boundaries and Bullshit” (Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, B.C., 1994; Oboro Gallery, Montreal, 1996). The on-line exhibition (2008 – 2018), “Making ‘Indian Art’ Modern”, Ruins in Process: Vancouver Art in the Sixties (Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery (UBC) represents her continued interest in archival ephemera, photographs and recorded oral histories, as does Projections: The Paintings of Henry Speck, Udzi’stalis (Museum of Anthropology, UBC, 2012). Although both exhibitions were intended to be part of her doctoral work, Crosby’s segue into new cultural fields represents an history of diverse interests. These have included the myth of Bill Reid (2004); the sculptural works of Dina Gomez, an Argentinian living and working in Vancouver; Indigenous performance art in two essays on the work of Rebecca Belmore (Vancouver Art Gallery, 2008) (Denver Art Museum, 2010) and the paintings of Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun (2016).
