Fix your hearts or die: A New Chapter Acquisition Project

April 13 - August 18

Event Navigation

“Fix your hearts or die” is a call to action wherein the stasis of maintaining the status quo is equivalent to death, either metaphorical or real. It is a call to viewers to engage with difficult or challenging topics and the complex intersections that are present for Indigenous artists. Silence in the face of discrimination is stasis, the death of existence on a spectrum. The call is even more urgent for marginalized persons where death is not simply a metaphor. Many Indigenous men, women, queer, and trans people have paid with their lives for their existence. In Fix your hearts or die, artists Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Daniel Cardinal McCartney, Sheri Nault, and Adrian Stimson grapple with these histories and make space to be who and how they are and to project this being into the world, for themselves, for their communities, and for future generations.
