This is an Emergency Broadcast

Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC - Jun 21 – Aug 11

This project by artist and activist Marianne Nicolson (Musgamakw/Dzawada’enuxw) begins with a recognition of the role community radio plays in Indigenous communities and manifests as an exhibition of “audio recordings that clarify a history of Indigenous articulation, collective organization and opposition to colonial forces.” Accompanying this inventive display of recordings are archival images and a reading room that provides visual, audio and text sources, in addition to a history of the radio as both a tool and a medium in the history of modern art.
