Future Memories (Present Tense)

Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Calgary, AB - Oct 6-Dec 2

by Robin Laurence

Works by six contemporary Indigenous artists from across Canada use story-
telling to “challenge linear ideas of time.” They also examine how both recorded histories and personal narratives inform the construction of identity. Art ranges from Meryl McMaster’s large photographs of a dreamlike condition suspended between past and future and joined by a single red thread to Peter Morin’s videotaped performance, walking deep into Tahltan territory to dispose of one history and replace it with another.
