The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Nitsitapi / Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe. We also acknowledge all of the Indigenous, Inuit and Métis peoples who make Alberta their home today.

Art for Lunch: LandMark

Are you ravenous for deeper learning about art? For this month’s Art for Lunch, Gallery Attendant Rita Neyer will explore how three Indigenous artists comprehend their personal connections to lands, landscapes, and landmarks that are of particular significance to them or their respective communities–connections that have been disrupted, lost, or are simply forgotten.

Much of our identity we owe to the places we grew up in and the memories of landscapes that surrounded us at all stages of life. The works featured in LandMark are an acknowledgement of Indigeneity as a crucial aspect of Alberta’s and Canada’s collective identity and heritage. The tour participants will get the chance to link the artists’ approaches to their stories, by connecting their own places and memories with the works in the exhibition, thereby individually contributing to the collective process of decolonialization.

Join us on Thursday September 20, 12:10 – 12:50 for a new perspective on LandMark: A New Chapter Acquisition Project. Art for Lunch is free with admission. Tour meets at Guest Services.
