Organized and circulated by the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery / Concordia University
Featuring contemporary art by Indigenous artists from around the circumpolar world, this exhibition expresses current Arctic concerns towards land, language, sovereignty and resurgence. Artists share kinship with each other and their ancestors, love for their homelands, and respect for the land and its inhabitants. They also share histories of colonialism and experience its ongoing legacies. These works invite viewers to contemplate relationships between textual and embodied Indigenous knowledges, innovation and sustainability, humour and resilience, and our collective responsibility to northern life and land.
Including work by asinnajaq, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Kablusiak, Carola Grahn, Marja Helander, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Joar Nango, Taqralik Partridge, Barry Pottle, Inuuteq Storch, Couzyn van Heuvelen, and Allison Akootchook Warden.
