2018 Exhibition

Launched in 2012, the Contemporary Native Art Biennial highlights the diversity in Native North American art practices. The 2018 edition focuses on the many different relationships between sisters, whether or not they are related by blood, from different nations. The artists tell stories of their childhood, sharing memories and highlighting events that shaped their identity as Indigenous women.

A touching performance by artists KC Adams and Jaime Black will mark the beginning of the vernissage.

Artists: KC Adams (Cree), Mayoreak Ashoona (Inuit), Soroseelutu Ashoona (Inuit), Eruoma Awashish (Atikamekw), Jaime Black (Métis), Catherine Blackburn (Dene), Carla Hemlock (Mohawk), Amy Malbeuf (Métis), Meryl McMaster (Plains Cree), Marian Snow (Kahnawake Mohawk), Ningiukulu Teevee (Inuit)

Curators: Niki Little and Becca Taylor
