INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE

Opens September 23

This month the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s largest-ever contemporary Indigenous art exhibit opens. INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE brings together 29 emerging-to-established Indigenous artists who are pushing boundaries with their work. The collection considers political insurgency and cultural resurgence to radically shift our understanding of Canada, now and in the future. Working in a variety of media, the artists focus on Indigenous intergenerational cultural knowledge within land based practices, gender, traditional aesthetics, language revitalization, interconnected kinships, identity, and material culture. INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE is on view through spring 2018.

Featuring work by:
Barry Ace • KC Adams • Joi T. Arcand • Dee Barsy • Scott Benesiinaabandan • Jordan Bennett • Heather Campbell • Bruno Canadien • Hannah Claus • Dana Claxton • Dayna Danger • Earthline Tattoo Collective • Bracken Hanuse Corlett • Tsema Igharas • Ursula Johnson • Casey Koyczan • Kenneth Lavallee • Duane Linklater • Tanya Lukin Linklater • Amy Malbeuf • Kent Monkman • Caroline Monnet • Tiffany Shaw-Collinge • Frank Shebageget • Amanda Strong • Joseph Tisiga • Couzyn van Heuvelen • Isabella Weetaluktuk • Linus Woods
