INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE brings together 29 emerging to established Indigenous artists who are pushing boundaries with their work. Every piece expresses political insurgency and cultural resurgence to radically shift the Canadian paradigm. Taking over 10,000 square feet of the Gallery – both indoor and outdoor space - the exhibition includes 12 commissioned works from artists across Canadian territories and nations. Feel the pulse of today through tufting, tattooing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, sound, beading, media, and performance.
