Join us at the Esker Foundation office in Calgary for a fascinating discussion with the Curator and artists in the exhibition Fix your hearts or die.
Esker Foundation and the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA) are pleased to present artists Daniel Cardinal McCartney, Adrian Stimson, and Danni Black in a discussion with AGA Adjunct Curator of Indigenous Arts, Jessie Ray Short. The panel will explore gender, sexuality, and the intersection of cultural identity and colonial traumas represented in the artists’ work currently on display at the AGA. Many Indigenous queer, two spirit, trans people, women and men have paid with their lives for their existence. Each artist brings a unique understanding to these topics, recognizing a richer space of existence outside of a normative binary.
The exhibition Fix your hearts or die featuring Daniel Cardinal McCartney, Adrian Stimson, Sheri Nault, and Cheryl L’Hirondelle is currently on view at the AGA through 18 August.
