Curator's Tour: StretchMark: A New Chapter Acquisition Project

Saturday, December 1, 2:00-3:00 pm

(Maximum tour capacity 30 people)

Join Adjunct Curator of Indigenous Art Franchesca Hebert-Spence on this guided tour of her recent exhibition StretchMark: A New Chapter Acquisition Project, to gain insight into how Indigenous curators and artists develop relationships with cultural institutions, coming to an understanding and wielding the institutional power as allies.

The third in a series of four exhibitions featuring works by contemporary Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit and Metis artists newly acquired for the AGA’s collection, StretchMark explores tension resulting from moments of rapid growth or change. These marks are physical manifestations which honour the difficulty of these processes. 

This exhibition features the works of contemporary Indigenous artists KC Adams, Lori Blondeau, Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal, Dayna Danger, Dean Drever and Skeena Reece.

Hebert-Spence’s grandmother was from Sagkeeng First Nation, Manitoba and her research focuses on identity both as an indigenous woman as well as a feminist.

Kinship is a common theme within her projects and those responsibilities direct the engagement she maintains within her community.
