Join the MJM&AG as we host an in person Opening Reception and Artist Talk with Edward Poitras for our upcoming exhibition "Edward Poitras: Revolution in the Rock Garden" on October 1st. The Opening Reception will be taking place from 3:00 – 5:00 pm with an Artist Talk at 3:00 pm. This exhibition will present a focused survey of the work of SK Métis artist, Edward Poitras. Poitras envisions this project not as a touring survey exhibition but as a series of “Treaty Four Art Actions”, played out in four different locations within Treaty Four territory, including project partners, Art Gallery of Swift Current, the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery (Yorkton, SK) and the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre (Medicine Hat, AB). These “art actions” will involve Poitras revisiting and re-contextualizing past works, choreographing the works to dialogue with new pieces and, essentially, creating new meanings or narratives that play out within the gallery space to address colonial history, its impacts on Indigenous nations and the significance of Treaty Four. This exhibition will be available for viewing at the MJM&AG from September 30th - December 31st!
