Description

Join us for food and entertainment in one of the participating galleries of your choice in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. Gallery Walk follows.

ACEARTINC (2-290 MCDERMOT AVENUE)

Performance by Karen Wallace, Joseph Naytowhow, and Patrick Lewis

Pimosayta (Learning to Walk Together)

This is a performative piece which braids three narratives; the general story of the “average Canadian” understanding of the residential schools and their legacy; the personal story of a residential school survivor; and the reverberations of trauma across generations as lived in the art therapy studio. The three presenters weave their stories together with a backdrop of images that augment the narrative demonstrating how the arts not only engage but foster knowledge production, empathy and a call to action.

THE EDGE GALLERY & URBAN ART CENTRE (210-611 MAIN STREET)

Artist Salon with Suzanne Rancourt a.k.a. Suzy Blue Flame

Inspired by the earth and the environment, Veteran, poet, songwriter, and musician, Ms. Rancourt draws from her military experience, her formal education, and the Native American traditions that are a constant guide for her to create an open and relaxed evening of sharing original music, poetry, and her creative process. “We are all Artists,” Ms. Rancourt notes, “We are all witnesses to something.”

MAWA – MENTORING ARTISTS FOR WOMEN’S ART (611 MAIN STREET)

GALLERY TBA

Documentary film and photography exhibit by Olesya Bonadareva

Guru Art: The Last Dervish of Kazakhstan

Every spiritual tradition has its own history, canons, and means of artistic expression. Such mystical arts are commonly created by shamans, healers, monks and other religious leaders. Mystical arts are the combination of visual arts, performance, ritual and even healing therapy. Torn out of their environments and placed in museums, sacred objects often lose their meanings and their potential to influence people’s perception. Instead, the art turns into traces, relics of echoes of what they really art.

Olesya Bondareva, a documentary film maker and a psychotherapist, creates exhibitions where this problem is addressed head-on, placing esoteric art objects alongside photo and video materials portraying significant moments of a religious or healing tradition to which it belongs. She captures the personal experience of the mystical tradition. Part of the Guru-Art series, “Last Dervish of Kazakhstan” exhibition presents the spiritual and healing traditions of Kazakhstan. The focus of the exhibition is Bifatima Daleutiva, a renowned in Kazakhstan Sufi master and shaman. The main art objects of the exhibitions are so-called “dervish maps,” sacred drawings made by Bifatima. Olesya spent many months with Bifatima, sharing in their lives and assisting her in ritual and other activities; the use of art as a healing tool. Her personal experience of living with the creators of mystical art, the masters of the tradition, result in an insider’s point of view, a recording of personal immersion into the tradition.
