Ts̱ēmā Igharas
future generations

May 25 – July 14, 2018

Opening Reception
Friday May 25
7-10pm

Artspace
378 Aylmer Street North
Peterborough, ON

Please join Artspace on Friday, May 25, 2018 from 7-10pm for the opening of future generations, an exhibition of new work by Ts̱ēmā Igharas. Then on Saturday May 26 from 1-3pm please join us for a bead-making workshop led by Igharas. The workshop is free to attend, and no previous experience is required.

These events will coincide with the launch of a new publication that focuses on the work of Igharas, with writing by Erin Sutherland and Jaimie Isaac. The limited run of 150 publications will be available for purchase at Artspace and through the centre’s website.


future generations is an exhibition that considers the role of Indigenous futurity as a tool of survival and survivance. The work is rooted in artist Ts̱ēmā Igharas’ understanding and embodiment of Tāłtān culture and tradition, alongside objects and materials firmly rooted in Western settler culture. Using Potlatch methodology - a ceremony of reciprocation and nation building, in which every performance of artmaking is a “ceremony that affirms and solidifies relationships to every thing and body” – Igharas challenges the colonial value systems and measurements of land and natural resources, and the impact these systems have on the cultural practices of Indigenous peoples and nations. future generations presents strategies and gestures of resistance to forms of neo-colonization – what the viewer may come to understand as acts of decolonization - and imagines possible future(s) for Indigenous peoples to exist within. Through the work in future generations Igharas encourages methods of care – for the land, and our bodies – that become modes of resistance for past/present/future generations.

Bio
Ts̱ēmā Igharas is an interdisciplinary artist and a member of the Tāłtān First Nation. She uses Potlatch methodology to create conceptual artwork influenced by her mentorship in Northwest Coast Formline Design at K’saan (2005/06), her studies in visual culture and time in the mountains. She has a Bachelor's degree from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2011) and graduated from the Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design program at OCADu showing her thesis work, LAND|MINE that connects materials to mine sites and bodies to the land. Ts̱ēmā has shown and performed in various places in Canada, and internationally in Chiapas, Mexico, Asheville, USA and Santiago, Chile.

Artspace’s main gallery is physically accessible.
