THE RED CHAIR SESSIONS

NADYA KWANDIBENS

The Red Chair Sessions is an ongoing open-call portraiture series by Indigenous photographer, Nadya Kwandibens, that places importance on the acknowledgement and reclamation of Indigenous lands and the revitalization of Indigenous languages.

The Douglas Family Art Centre is pleased to show this exhibition from July 16 - September 25.

Beads of Truth
BEADS OF TRUTH

RUTH CUTHAND

For more than 40 years Ruth Cuthand has used her art as a platform to speak about historic and contemporary settler/Native relationships and to challenge mainstream perspectives of colonialism. In 2020 she was presented with the Governor General’s Award for Visual Arts.

Beads of Truth features beadwork that addresses the history of diseases introduced to Indigenous peoples from Europeans settlers, the poor conditions in which many live on reserves, and the effects of intergenerational trauma.

The Douglas Family Art Centre is pleased to show this exhibition from September 17 - November 27.
