TIME OF THINGS / THE CONTINUUM OF INDIGENOUS CUSTOMARY PRACTICE INTO CONTEMPORARY ART

March 28 2020

Guest Curator: FRANCE TRÉPANIER

Artists: DAPHNE BOYER, MAUREEN GRUBEN, SUSAN PAVEL, SKEENA REECE, MARIKA ECHACHIS SWAN

“The Time of Things proposes to challenge the binary of traditional and contemporary art. It considers the continuum of Indigenous customary practices into contemporary Indigenous art through the work of five women artists – Daphne Boyer, Maureen Gruben, Susan Pavel, Skeena Reece, and Marika Echachis Swan. Through their various Indigenous perspectives, this exhibition explores how the concept of time informs the production of Indigenous art today. It looks at how time influences connections to materials and process and it delves into the influence of intergenerational memory and knowledge passed through time on art-making.”
