Innovation. Adaptation. Experimentation.

“These concepts have been inherent in Indigenous worldviews since beyond memory or record. Indigenous cultures have been able to move through time and space with the adaptation of new materials encountered through land migration and colonization. These encounters presented Indigenous peoples with different ways of thinking and creating. The inspired experimentation resulted in advanced forms that portrayed the dynamic and ever-evolving cultures of Turtle Island (North America). Material Experiments explores these forms through selected works of art that are housed at the Aboriginal Art Centre (ACC) at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada in Gatineau, Quebec. The artists presented in this exhibition have challenged themselves by utilizing new materials, techniques and processes. Through this experimentation these artists have created innovative and thought-provoking works that demonstrate that Indigenous art is not static, but evolves and continues to adapt with its people.” – Danielle Printup
