Future Memories (Present Tense): Contemporary Practices in Perspective

October 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm MDT

Opening reception Oct 5, 5-7pm.

The Alberta College of Art + Design’s (ACAD) Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) is pleased to present a new group show entitled Future Memories (Present Tense) which brings together six contemporary Indigenous artists from different regions of Canada, whose work diversely challenges linear ideas of time through story-telling. Each artwork uniquely relates to the theme by either surfacing silenced narratives, deconstructing current dominant narratives, or imagining of a past yet to be.

The exhibition considers how history, tradition, and personal narratives inform the construction of one’s own cultural identity as this fluctuates and re-arranges itself continuously. The authorial voices included in the selection not only open a window on how Indigenous communities and individuals wish to represent and project themselves today but construct new scenarios, give shape to a possible future, poetically and politically rethinking our society in relation to selfhood. The six participating artists are Sonny Assu, Mark Igloliorte, Meryl McMaster, Peter Morin, Rolande Souliere, and Adrian Stimson.
