The exhibition highlights the significance of mentoring relationships in First Nations culture, while foregrounding a growing and strengthening generation of emerging First Nations artists whose works are continuing and challenging traditions. In addition to the knowledge and skills the younger artists gain from their mentors and communities, they are also influenced by other modes of education, decolonization and globalization. Organized by Richmond Art Gallery curator Nan Capogna and guest curator Connie Watts, the exhibition includes photography, weaving, painting, jewellery and carving. A publication will accompany the exhibition.
Presented in partnership with the YVR Art Foundation
