McMichael Canadian Art Collection
10365 Islington Avenue
Co-produced by the Thunder Bay Art Gallery and Carleton University Art Gallery, “Uprising: The Power of Mother Earth” is the first retrospective of Christi Belcourt’s work, and spans more than twenty-five years of her art-making career.
The exhibition showcases a full spectrum of Christi Belcourt’s artworks, from pieces created in the early 1990s to recent collaborations with Isaac Murdoch. Her striking large scale paintings mirror the meticulous and provoking beadwork designs from her Métis ancestral history, and honours the teachings that accompany those patterns. It’s absolutely worth checking out. —Adrienne Huard, editor-at-large
