The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art presents the new exhibition Resurgence: Indigequeer Identities, curated by Jordana Luggi - which celebrates the deeply personal and profound work of four emerging 2Spirit artists - and their unique identities and stories as queer Indigenous people, on display October 21, 2020 to January 24, 2021. The featured works from artists Levi Nelson (Lil’wat First Nation), Jaz Whitford (Secwepemc), Morgan Whitehead (Plains Cree) and Raven John (Coast Salish/Sto:lo) explore the roles they see themselves playing in their communities today, influenced by their own rich experiences that reflect the diversity of Indigequeer love and life. Delving into themes of Indigequeer existence, resistance and resilience, Resurgence: Indigequeer Identities showcases various mediums from large-scale portrait and abstract paintings, traditionally-inspired jewelry, clothing and accessories with a twist, and colourful and creative sculptural art.
Supported by the BC Arts Council, and presented as part of the Chief James Hart Emerging Artist Program.
