Shelley Niro – A Good, Long Look

Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina Public Library
January 15 – April 3, 2022, Sherwood Gallery
January 22 – March 25, 2022, Central Gallery

For over 30 years, Shelley Niro has challenged colonial definitions of Indigenous peoples throughout her extensive art and filmmaking practice. From her unique perspective as a Mohawk artist, Niro frequently casts herself and family members in her work to harness familial agency. Through her work, she reconstructs historical narratives and defies stereotypical representations of Indigenous people, often using humour and a flair for storytelling. Niro’s work continually stresses the significance of the land within Indigenous worldviews, languages, and ways of being.

Shelley Niro is a member of the Turtle Clan, Bay of Quinte Mohawk from the Six Nations Reserve. She holds a degree from Ontario College of Art and a Master of Fine Art from the University of Western Ontario. Niro has exhibited across Canada has work in collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, Canadian Museum of History, and Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography. Her award-winning films have been screened in festivals worldwide, and she presented work at the 2003 Venice Biennale. Shelley Niro lives in Brantford, Ontario.
