From June 10 to September 10, 2023

The exhibition Yahndawa’: Portages between Wendake and Quebec was first presented last fall at VU, at L’Œil de Poisson, at the Bande Vidéo and in the bay window of Méduse. Beyond a simple exhibition, Yahndawa’ is an exchange project between 7 artists from Wendake and 7 artists from Quebec who have carried out co-creation residencies in the 7 participating artistic organizations. Following a long process of exchange and sharing around their practices, the artists were brought to collaborate to create joint works. The title, Yahndawa’ (river) refers to the Atiawenrahk/Saint-Charles River which connects the two towns and connects the two communities.

This summer, the Huron-Wendat Museum wishes to present some of the creations resulting from this sharing process in an exhibit here, in Wendake. In the idea of ​​going up the river to its source, each work transmits in its own way questions of territory, culture and identity… but also the notion of sharing and collaboration.
