Faune boréale

Temporary
Travelling Group Exhibition June 15, 2024 to September 15, 2024

Boreal wildlife, source of life, inspiration and spirituality for the Aboriginal peoples of Northern Quebec. Cette thématique a interpellé le Musée huron-wendat qui a choisi cette exposition pour sa saison estivale 2024.

Twelve works. Twelve Aboriginal artists from the Innu, Atikamekw, Cree of Eeyou Itschee, Anishnabe, Huron-Wendat and Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk Nations. Twelve perspectives on the relationship between the First Nations and the animals that cohabit the territory.

The diversity of boreal fauna is highlighted in this exhibition, with artists paying tribute to birds, mammals, insects and fish. First Nations have developed rich cultures strongly linked to their environment, and the diversity of perceptions is reflected in the displayed works.

The artists : Eruoma Awashish, Terry Awashish, Sarah Cleary, Amélie Courtois, Sonia DegrandMaison, Manuel Kurtness, Sophie Kurtness, Akienda Lainé, Marie-France Nicolas, Francine Picard, Frank Polson, Tim Whiskeychan.
