Description:

Don’t miss this occasion to come together and celebrate Agnes’s reopening for two more seasons of exhibitions in our current space.

Emergence: A Recent Gift of Indigenous Art highlights important early and mid-career works of art by Malaya Akulukjuk, Kenojuak Ashevak, Irene Avaalaaqiaq, Robert Houle, Alex Janvier, Norval Morrisseau, Jessie Oonark and Parr, among others. As a collection, their works provide a cohesive vision of the approaches and concerns of artists working in the 1970s. The exhibition delves into the artists’ chosen materials and techniques that resulted in art forms championed through established community centres, craft guilds, and art galleries. Both emerging and elder artists experimented with a variety of media—across drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, and textiles. In doing so, they 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.

On public view at Agnes for the first time, don’t miss your chance to see these works!

Refreshments are available with remarks around 6:30 pm. We hope you come and celebrate with us!
