First Encounter

We had a nice cold day in Winnipeg. We attended the Opening Reception of “unSacred” by Scott Benesiinaabandan at Gallery 1C03 and “The Forgiveness Project (Pardoner Moi)” by Nadia Myre at La Maison Des Artistes Visuels Francophones, as well as Rosalie Favell’s Curatorial Lecture about “Acting Up! Performing the Indian”. All these events were fabulous.
We met so many people that our heads were spinning. The following is a brief attempt to map out the connections between ourselves and the other people involved in Contemporary Indigenous art that we met, at these events. As artists and curators, we wanted to create a visual representation of our colleagues. The connections within and between our Aboriginal communities are reflective of those we have within this tight-knit arts community. The Chart is a work in progress, as are our growing relationships within this community.
