In Conversation: The Legacy of Alex Janvier and The Professional Native Indian Artists Inc (PNIAI)
September 8, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm MDT
Glenbow is honoured to host a conversation between Canadian contemporary artists Jackson 2bears, Tanya Harnett, Janice Tanton and Faye HeavyShield as a celebratory finish to the incredible Alex Janvier: Modern Indigenous Master exhibition. This special In Conversation event will explore the enduring and vital influence of the pioneering group of Indigenous artists who called themselves the Professional National Indian Artists Incorporation.
The group was also known as the Indian Group of Seven and included some of Canada’s best-known artists: Daphne Odjig, Alex Janvier, Jackson Beardy, Eddy Cobiness, Norval Morrisseau, Carl Ray and Joseph Sanchez. The group’s strong artistic and political convictions and their work in the 1970s ultimately changed the way Canadians view art.
