September 29, 2022
5:00 – 8:00 pm (remarks at 6:00 pm)
Adrian Stimson: Anthro-Obscene (and other works) gives viewers an introduction to the artist’s large and diverse practice, providing a glimpse into his process and ways of working. Stimson is not easily introduced – his art practice is built from many layers of interconnected ways of being and working, formed alongside his navigation of personal and cultural questions.
Adrian Stimson is a member of the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation – a great-grandson of Natos-api (Old Sun), the Siksika Nation chief who revolted against the establishment of the reservation system and its residential schools – who lives where the vegetable gardens of the Old Sun Residential School once grew.
