Nanaimo Art Gallery, Nanaimo, BC - To Nov 15

by Robin Laurence

Organized by the Winnipeg Art Gallery and curated by Jaimie Isaac, this lively exhibition spotlights 12 Indigenous artists who surf, skate and snowboard – and use these activities to challenge conformity and navigate their terrain. Through a range of media, from painting and carving to performance and video, the artists critique the status quo while a rming their cultural identities and their enduring connection to the land. Complementing the show is a mini half-pipe in the gallery’s Art Lab education space.
