Event Details

 

 

Charlene Vickers is an Anishinaabe artist based in Vancouver. Her painting, sculpture and performance works explore memory, healing and embodied connections to ancestral lands. She recreates moccasins and blankets with materials that point to current social and cultural conditions in urban First Nations life and combines them with personal artifacts.

 

Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun Lets’lo:tseltun, of Coast Salish descent, graduated from the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in British Columbia. Yuxweluptun is Salish for “man of many masks,” a name given to the artist during his initiation into the Sxwaixwe Society at the age of fourteen.  Lets’lo:tseltun was given to Lawrence by Sto:lo artist Laura Wee Lay Laq in 2018 and means “man of many colours.”  His paintings and sculptures combine Coast Salish cosmology, Northwest Coast design, and Western landscape painting. Yuxweluptun Lets’lo:tseltun’s paintings can be brutal critiques of issues affecting Canada’s First Nations. He broaches topics such as land title, residential schools, and the destruction of the environment.
