Carrie Allison: These Threads Hold Memory

July 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MDT

Carrie Allison’s These Threads Hold Memory, on view at The New Gallery from July 5 to August 10, 2019, Indigenizes western notions of information and data using traditional beading techniques. Allison’s beading is a tool to share statistics, thoughts, and to contemplate narratives. This exhibition utilizes technology — including web platforms, QR codes, and video — to connect with the viewer, asking them to recenter and value Indigenous histories. This use of technology and new media also explicitly carves out more space for Indigenous voices, creating widely accessible opportunities to witness and engage with Allison’s selection of Indigenous, colonial and personal histories.

Opening reception July 5 at 8pm.
