INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE challenges conceptions
Winnipeg Art Gallery brings together 29 Indigenous artists who are pushing boundaries.
The Winnipeg Art Gallery's latest exhibit features a collection that considers both political insurgency and cultural resurgence to radically shift our understanding of Canada, now and in the future. INSURGENCE /RESURGENCE is the WAG's largest-ever exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art and includes 12 new commissions from artists across Canadian territories and nations.
Curated by Jaimie Isaac and Julie Nagam, the exhibit brings together 29 emerging-to-established Indigenous artists who are pushing boundaries with their work. Working in a variety of media, the artists focus on Indigenous intergenerational cultural knowledge within land based practices, gender, traditional aesthetics, language revitalization, interconnected kinships, identity, and material culture. Feel the pulse of today through tufting, tattooing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, sound, beading, media, and performance.
Exhibit runs until April 22, 2018
