Event Details

How do the lives of 2Spirit people challenge and transcend colonial understanding of gender and sexuality?

The new exhibition Resurgence: Indigequeer Identities, curated by Jordana Luggi which celebrates the deeply personal and profound work of four 2Spirit artists; and their unique identities and stories as queer Indigenous people. The featured works by artists Levi Nelson (Lil’wat First Nation), Jaz Whitford (Secwepemc), Morgan Whitehead (Plains Cree) and Raven John (Coast Salish/Sto:lo) explore the roles the artists 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.
