Mary Longman: Warrior Woman “Stop The Silence!”
Installation, Ribbon Campaign & Essay
November 8 to December 6, 2014
Opening Reception November 22 at 8pm

“Warrior woman shouts out, “Stop the Silence!” as the North American ‘holocaust’ remains submerged and absent from educational history texts and government discourse. There has not been government acknowledgement, an apology or any memorials. She calls to action a national and international campaign for Indigenous Genocide by raising the tightly clutched red and white campaign ribbon, in the hope to raise awareness and bring justice to all those that perished. This work serves as a long-overdue memorial to all the Indigenous men, women and children who unnecessarily died only because the color of their skin. Their spirits will be honored and not forgotten.”

Mary Longman

Joi T. Arcand, Shelley Niro: Transformation at AKA
K.C. Adams, Terrance Houle: Testimony at PAVED
Curated by Felicia Gay
November 8 to December 6, 2014
Opening Reception November 22 at 8pm

Transformation is a traditional concept that still holds weight within our Indigenous communities and powerfully works to reframe the notion of power and Aboriginal women.

Monster – Stories of Women, is a series in which Shelley Niro explores the Haudenosaunee story of Skywoman in order to create another kind of image of Indigenous women with a legacy beginning in the Skyworld. Continuing the theme of transformation is Joi T. Arcand’s new work The Beautiful NDN Supermaidens ™ featuring Indigenous women empowered as Supermaidens. Together, Arcand and Niro’s practices are connected thematically to address, in a multifaceted way, Canada’s missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

Testimony features the testimonies of Indigenous peoples concerning difficult knowledge, in this instance the focus is primarily on the testimonies of Indigenous women.

Both K.C. Adams and Terrance Houle are adept at creating a third space in which testimony has an opportunity to become a strategy. Both artists visually narrate the experiences and realities of violence against Indigenous women with acts of subtle silences, murmurings and whispers pertaining to who Indian women are in Canada– and who are they?
