The Indigenous Resurgence Project is a grassroots art collective, and initiative based in Kamloops that supports and showcases local Indigenous artists. This collective exhibition is a way to show the unique and intricate diversity of artists in the area. Indigenous artists and the pieces they create come in many different shapes, sizes, and designs – some following familiar patterns of traditional practices, and others recontextualizing art in new and modern styles.
The Indigenous Resurgence project works with artists of any medium and practice, putting emphasis on the diversity of each craft. Being an Indigenous artist isn’t about adhering to a certain style or form – it’s about reclaiming our voice through creativity and storytelling and about sharing our perspective. We need to redefine what Indigenous art means, and our perception of it. This exhibition is one small piece in that process
The Indigenous Resurgence Project’s show will be exhibited in the Alcove and Hallway galleries from June 3rd to July 27th, 2023.
