Revisioning the Indigenous Continuum
January 2014 - September 2014
Wanuskewin Grand Hall Gallery is proud to present selected works from the Saskatchewan Arts Board Indigenous Collection. With five decades of acquisitions, the Saskatchewan Arts Board has an impressive collection of Indigenous works ranging in media from painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, to textiles, beaded and quill works.
This exhibition highlights a selection of two-dimensinal works in photography, painting, printmaking, digital and mixed-media. While some artists in this exhibit draw inspiration from the traditonial arts of beadwork, design motifs, quilting, and the powwow, to extend Indigenous aesthetics and concepts into their contemporary practise, other artists utilize the strategy of mapping a specific place related to experience and history, to redefine the Indigenous reality in the past and present.
