LAND BACK
CONTEMPORARY NATIVE ART BIENNAL (BACA)
6th edition

Launched in 2012, BACA highlights the diversity of Native North American art practices.

For this sixth edition, the focus will be on the Land Back movement, referring to the Indigenous-leaded actions to recover stewardship of traditional lands and ecosystems, protecting them for future generations. Indigenous knowledge is rooted in sustainability, conservation, and reciprocity with the land. How is this knowledge shared, celebrated, and expressed in current artistic practices?

TRAVERSÉE/CROSSING

Traversée/Crossing explores the rich connections between water-sports and contemporary art. Featuring practices, spaces, and rituals associated with swimming, diving, surfing, canoeing, kayaking, and boating, the exhibition considers how aquatics can highlight important cultural, socio-political, and economic questions. The works on view demonstrate how present-day water sports are often rooted in colonial histories or sites of exclusionary behaviours. Playing in water, with boats or their bodies, many of the artists celebrate queer, Black, and Indigenous life, reclaiming the water as a safe, spiritual space of leisure.

ARTISTS:  Lori Blondeau, Chris Boyne, Michelle Furlong, Mark Igloliorte, Hazel Meyer, François Morelli, Nadia Myre, Derrick Woods-Morrow

PROJECT ROOM

In her in situ response to Traversée/Crossing exhibition, Michelle Furlong applies her spatial sensitivities to the ebbs and flows of water. Through site-specific, sculptural installation of varying scales, she presents a prism to approach water sports or other water-based, leisure activities. Bridging the environmental fluidity of the Lac Saint-Louis with the interior space of the Stewart Hall Art Gallery, the artist reminds us how water can be a site of embodied and transcendent actions.

Julia Rose Sutherland Vigil – The Land Remembers, 2022

 

OUTDOOR EXHIBITION: LAND BACK
Contemporary Native Art Biennial

With the First Family series (2019), Carrie Allison uses beadwork to represent native medicinal flowers. These pieces summarize the repetitive and intensive meditative practice used by the artist to develop connections with medicinal plants.

 

In her performance, Vigil – The Land Remembers (2022), Julia Rose Sutherland marks the ground with an anonymous scar, a hole in the landscape as a place of opening. In this space, she gives hommage to the North American Indigenous women missing or murdered. These places become respectful memorials and platforms for honest, open and authentic discussions.
