About this event

rudi aker, Patricia Bourque, Lindsay Dobbin, Meagan Musseau

Curator: Emily Critch

these are our monuments is a gathering of artwork that honours the histories and memories embedded in the traditional waterways of the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik. The title of the exhibition comes from “Poem 10,” by Mi’kmaw poet Rita Joe, in which she expresses a desire for the reader to reject colonial understandings of historical records and monuments and emphasizes the importance of holding reverence for the lands and waters that connect us throughout Mi’kma’ki and Wabanaki Territory. Using photography, installation, beadwork, sound, and poetry, the artists generate counter-cartographic narratives that honour the kinships and knowledge systems held within these waterways that sustain us.

On view at the Owens Art Gallery 11 September - 2 November 2021

Masks are mandatory at this event.
