Onsite Gallery’s upcoming exhibition will feature contemporary art by Indigenous artists from around the circumpolar world. ᐊᕙᑖᓂᑦ ᑕᒪᐃᓐᓂᑦ ᓄᓇᑐᐃᓐᓇᓂᑦ/Among All These Tundras, opens with a free public reception on September 18 (6 to 9 p.m.).

The featured works express current Arctic concerns towards land, language, sovereignty and resurgence. Artists from throughout the circumpolar north share kinship with each other and their ancestors, love for their homelands, and respect for the land and its inhabitants. They also share histories of colonialism, experience its ongoing legacies and are united in their desire to protect northern ecologies, languages, peoples and knowledge from the nefarious effects of climate change, encroaching industry and competition.

Curated by Heather Igloliorte, Amy Dickson and Charissa von Harringa, the exhibition runs through December 7, 2019 and is produced and circulated by the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Concordia University.

Faculty members: please email Linda Columbus (lcolumbus@ocadu.ca) to book a free guided tour for your class this fall term.
