    Visiting

    Is a deliberate act of sharing physical place or holding space to create and strengthen new and long-standing connections. Visiting is also putting on tea, nurturing, laughing, and hosting with intention–doing things tenderly, even if it takes longer. Likewise, this exhibition offers an extended meeting.

    The artists’ voices converse with one another, steeping together to create new narratives that present expressions of identity and contemporary and traditional practices and ways of knowing.

    Baawaating has been a meeting place for Indigenous people since time immemorial. This exhibition, which brings together works by local and visiting young Indigenous women and two-spirit artists, carries that tradition.

    Visiting invites guests to stay a while and consider what you may bring in terms of energy or intention to this space, place and gathering.
