AN INVITATION TO INDIGENOUS ARTISTS FOR CELEBRATING THE INDIGENOUS SPIRIT
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (Accepted September 22 - October 22, 2017)
In the spirit of collaboration, reciprocity and exchange, Humber Galleries and the Aboriginal Resource Centre have partnered with The Public Studio to bring forward Celebrating the Indigenous Spirit, an inter-generational group show taking place at north Space from November 20 - December 8, 2017.
Throughout history, Indigenous peoples have found the strength to creatively connect with worlds that exist beyond what is. In many cases, this has meant struggling to reclaim and regenerate relational, place-based existences amongst ongoing forces of destruction. Whether through art, dance, performance, or culturally embedded practice, the roots of Indigenous artistry run deep, reaching up and across generations to feed the spirit.
Celebrating the Indigenous Spirirt incoporates and encourages inter-generational approached to honour the rich diversity, imaginative beauty, and resilient vitality of Indigenous artistry. While artists are encouraged to consider the resurgence of Indigenous power through creative expression and practice, broad interpretations exploring the following areas are also welcome: intersectionality, urbanity, intergenerational trauma and resilience; cultural reclamation and restoration, regeneration; revitilization and renewal; health and wellness; self-determinism, decolonization and reconciliation.
