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.
