Upcoming: David Garneau: Métissage

February 2, 2023 - April 22, 2023

In this survey exhibition, Edmonton-born artist David Garneau documents his Métis heritage and his struggle to shape a contemporary Métis identity.  His paintings, video and other media focus on the Métis resistances of 1870 and 1885 which impacted the lives of his great, great-grandparents, Laurent and Eleanor of Edmonton’s Garneau district.  With his imagination, wit and some ambivalence, this Regina-based artist pictures and celebrates historic and contemporary Métis lived experience.

Organized by Nickle Galleries, curated by Mary-Beth Laviolette.
