Curator: Nan Capogna and Connie Watts

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

The YVR Art Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports BC First Nations art and artists through scholarships, awards and exhibitions.
