Exhibition

Nanabozho's Sisters

12 October – 25 November, 2018

Nanabozho’s Sisters is an exhibition that acknowledges the history of Indigenous women artist’s contribution to the deployment of humour, irony, and satire within the visual arts. Nanabozho is a ‘trickster’ figure in Anishinaabe stories who can transform into any gender or animal form. We often find ourselves laughing at their actions or admiring their bravery.
