FIRST NATIONS NOW : BETWEEN WORLDS
June 9 – June 25, 2017
In conjunction with
Origins Festival of First Nations
Indigenous Canadian artists, from the Northwest Pacific Coast to the Cree heartland, explore hybridity and autobiography. Traditional art practices and iconography meet remix culture, performance art and corporeal narrative, reconstructing personal and shared identities betwixt realities. Lithographs by Robert Davidson, Haida; sculptural photography by Meryl McMaster, Plains Cree; digital interventions by Kwakwaka’wakw Sonny Assu; and panel and hide paintings by Kwakwaka’wakw Steve Smith, as well as Japanese-inspired Inuit block prints and the place-based collaborative spirit of Pacific Coast artist and designer, Sabina Hill.
