Karin Jones and Amy Malbeuf bring to prominence cultural identities and histories through the objects they make by leveraging materials and concepts within a contemporary context. Jones, an artist of African descent living in Vancouver, and Malbeuf, a Métis artist based in Nova Scotia, work with traditional and contemporary materials and techniques that encourage discussions regarding labour, identity, cultural knowledge, and cultural legacies.

Karin Jones is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in jewellery. She received a Diploma in Jewellery Art & Design from Vancouver Community College in 1993, before embarking on a 20-plus year career as a goldsmith and independent artisan.  She received an MFA in Craft from NSCAD University (2018), where she began her most recent work dealing with the ways historical narratives shape our sense of identity. Her work has been shown across Canada, and in the United States, Japan, and Finland. She is currently Department Head of Jewellery Art & Design at Vancouver Community College.

Amy Malbeuf is a Métis visual artist from Rich Lake, Alberta. Utilizing materials such as caribou hair tufting, beadwork, installation, performance, and video, Malbeuf explores notions of identity, place, language, and ecology. Malbeuf has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at such venues as Art Mûr, Montréal, MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina; Art Gallery of Alberta; and Pataka Art + Museum, Porirua, New Zealand and has participated in many international artist residencies.  Malbeuf holds a MFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia Okanagan. In 2016 Malbeuf received a Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artist Award and a William and Meredith Saunderson Prize for Emerging Artists in Canada from the Hnatyshyn Foundation and was long listed for the 2017 Sobey Art Award.
