Join us for the February edition of our Community Tour Series, which invites a new speaker each month to lead a tour of a current exhibition, giving our audience a unique perspective on the artwork on display. This month we are thrilled to welcome curator Belinda Uwase to lead a tour of the exhibition Inheritance featuring work by Deanna Bowen, Steven Nunoda, Adrian Stimson and AA Bronson.
You can participate in this hour-long program both in-person and online through watching our Zoom livestream. Registration is required for guest attending in person; due to the space limitations registration is limited. This artist talk is included in the price of general admission to the gallery or free for members. The livestream of the artist talk is free and will require advance registration as well.
The exhibition Inheritance forefronts historical facts that are often hidden or untold because they reveal that our shared past includes, and is based on, acts and systems of brutality, racism and oppression. Told by artists through research into the lives of family members and familial connections, the works in Inheritance demonstrate that history continues to reverberate through time, impacting the present and future.
Belinda Uwase (she/her) is a curator and first-generation Rwandan currently residing in Edmonton. Belinda has held volunteer roles with the Art Gallery of Alberta and the youth organization YEGTheComeUP, where she led the Arts and Culture Task Force.

This exhibition is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston and Lindsey Sharman. Inheritance is presented by Capital Powered Art, an exhibition series sponsored by Capital Power.
