February 7 - March 30
This exhibition is a groundbreaking collaboration with RISE—Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton, including Métis poet Anna Marie Sewell, historian and writer Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail, visual artist Jennie Vegt, and cultural connector Miranda Jimmy. The exhibition consists of seven paintings by Vegt, based on archival photos that depict Indigenous and settler interactions from the signing of Treaty through to present day. Collectively, they demonstrate ongoing reconciliation. Each piece is partnered with poetry created in response to the images. The exhibition features a robust program of events to engage visitors in their role as treaty people.
