Emergence: A Recent Gift of Indigenous Art
This exhibition highlights important early and mid-career works of art by contemporary Indigenous artists from across Turtle Island, North and South. As a collection, thee works serve to provide a cohesive vision of the approaches and concerns of artists working in the 1970s – a period during which both emerging and elder artists experimented with various media, in drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, and textiles. During that formative decade, chosen materials and techniques resulted in art forms championed through established community centres, craft guilds, and art galleries. These artists shaped new artistic markets and became influential advocates and innovators in the field of contemporary and Indigenous art, forging paths for future generations of artists.
