On Friday, March 1 at 7 p.m., an exciting exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art will open at Brandon University’s (BU’s) Glen P. Sutherland Gallery of Art. It will include works from some of the most revered contemporary artists, such as Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, Jackson Beardy, Carl Beam and Arthur Amiotte, as well as works by students, alumni and community artists.

Indigenous Art: Beyond History was organized by art history professor Dr. Stacey Koosel’s Contemporary Indigenous Art course. Her students worked as curators of the exhibition led by Felicity Nepinak-Hart as the Chief Curator of the project. Together they selected, researched and installed an exhibition of works by two dozen Indigenous artists, ranging in artistic mediums from paintings, prints and textile, to beading, installation and video.

The exhibition opening will include a smudging ceremony and drumming by The Good Hearted Warriors, as well as tea and bannock for guests from the Brandon Friendship Center.

The exhibition will run for two weeks, from March 1 to 15, from Monday to Saturday, 1 to 4 p.m., and will feature daily tours of the exhibition by the student curators.
