Agnes reopens the galleries for two more seasons. Extended hours for the summer and free admission, always!

Emergence highlights important early and mid-career works of art by contemporary Indigenous artists from across Turtle Island, North and South. As a collection, these works provide a cohesive vision of the approaches and concerns of artists working in the 1970s. Both emerging and elder artists experimented with various media, in drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, and textiles. In 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.

Featured artists: Pauloosie Akitirq, Malaya Akulukjuk, Elizabeth Angrnaqquaq, Kenojuak Ashevak, Irene Avaalaaqiaq, Benjamin Chee Chee, Sarah Elijassiapik, Robert Houle, Elisapee Ishulutaq, Alex Janvier, Eugenie Tautoonie Kabluitok, Helen Kalvak, R.
