Opening Reception & Curator’s Talk: April 21, 2018 | 2-4 PM | FREE
Gallery Hours: Thursday–Sunday from 12–5 pm (except statutory holidays) and by appointment. Information to plan your visit or get in touch can be found here.
Critical Distance and Aboriginal Curatorial Collective present FORWARD FACING, curated by Cass Gardiner (Toronto/Brooklyn). Forward Facing examines intersectionality within Indigenous identity through the photographic, video, craft, and installation practices of Dayna Danger (Montreal), Lacie Burning (Vancouver), and Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter (Calgary).
Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island express and assert their identity in conversation with their cultural roots in a multitude of ways, and always in tandem with ever-looming colonialism. Utilizing the device of the mask, the artists in Forward Facing provoke and question how the face – or the absence of it – creates a powerful commentary on contemporary Indigenous culture.
Bike Tube Flogger-Making Workshop with Dayna Danger: April 22 from 2-4 pm at Project Studio.
