Dr Léuli Eshrāghi (ia/they/he), Sāmoan artist, curator and researcher living between Nhulunbuy and Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montréal, intervenes in display territories to centre Indigenous presence, sensual and spoken languages, and ceremonial-political practices. Through performance, moving image, writing and installation, ia engages with Indigenous possibility as haunted by ongoing militourist and missionary violences that erase faʻafafine-faʻatama from kinship structures.
Ia contributes to growing international critical practice across the Great Ocean and North America through residencies, exhibitions, publications, teaching and rights advocacy. Eshrāghi is the inaugural Horizon/Indigenous Futures postdoctoral fellow at Concordia University, co-guest editor with Kimberley Moulton of Artlink Indigenous art issue titled KIN CONSTELLATIONS languages waters futures (June 2020), and a member of The Space Between Us SSHRC project (2020-28) led by Dr Julie Nagam.
