A Major Exhibition of Contemporary Indigenous Art

The work of three Ontario artists will be featured in a major exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ.

Entitled Larger Than Memory: Contemporary Art from Indigenous North America, it’s the museum’s largest exhibition of contemporary art in its 90-year history, featuring more than 40 works by 22 artists from across the United States and Canada. All of the work was created in the 21st century.

Officials at the museum say, “Indigenous artists from North America present work that addresses critical dialogues taking place globally.”

Miss America and Danaë Receiving the Golden Rain, by Toronto based internationally renowned Cree artist Kent Monkman are featured, along with a high-definition video, Slay All Day, by North Bay’s Tanya Lukin Linklater.

Also featured is a special commission by Ottawa’s Meryl McMaster;  a conceptual self-portrait titled, What Will I Say to The Sky and the Earth II. The large-format portrait depicts the artist in a snow-covered landscape wearing a white dress adorned with red mayflies.

The show runs until January 3rd, 2021.
