Opening: 21 June, 3pm-5pm
Parks Canada presents Many Voices Indigenous Art at Bellevue House National Historic Site, initiated by the Georgian Bay Ontario East Field Unit. Many Voices: Indigenous Art, as part of LandMarks2017/Repères2017, is invested in the idea that narratives of confederation in Canada centre diverse voices and Indigenous land-bases. Our shared stories, at their heart, are about land, belonging, language(s) and culture(s) that stem from our interconnectedness with the earth. They explore the idea that the land claims us – that wherever we are from, it is possible for us to be changed by the land around us. The art pieces are primarily located in the Visitor Centre and aim to ignite conversations. Many Voices weaves together a selection of work that place focus on our relationships to one another. Works in this exhibition are on loan from the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Aboriginal Art Collection.
Many Voices takes place June 15th – October 7th at Bellevue House National Historic. This indoor exhibition will showcase a representation of LandMarks2017/Repères2017 artist works as well as a selection from the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada’s Aboriginal Art collection.
