Adrian Stimson

April 28-July 7th 2017 Reception and artist talk April 29

Solo exhibition by critically acclaimed artist Adrian Stimson. Stimson’s School Days, a critical look at the residential school system and its effects on the Canadian imaginary and the longstanding effects on Indigenous people in Canada. Recently I had a conversation with a friend of mine and the legacy of resilience, the power of blood memory and in this series we are a witness to the resilience of Indigenous people and the power to ignite, burn away, destroy in totality the inherited inter-generational trauma caused by those who implemented this particular institution of power over the most vulnerable of our society-children.
