Edmonton-born artist George Littlechild describes his work as “art that speaks from the heart, the social and the political.” Littlechild is committed to righting the wrongs that First Nations peoples have endured by creating work that focuses on cultural, social and political injustices. As an artist, educator, cultural worker, and a child who grew up during the ‘60s-scoop in Edmonton, Littlechild’s goal is a better world.
Featuring a series of portraits of residential schoolchildren created by Littlechild, this exhibition will show the pride, strength and beauty of First Nations people and cultures with the artist’s goal to contribute to the betterment of mankind.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, and curated by MJ Belcourt. Presented by Capital Powered Art, an exhibition series sponsored by the Capital Power Corporation.
