As part of Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange (GAX), the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Group (EAHR) and the Indigenous Art Research Group (IARG) are curating a series of exhibitions at Concordia University’s SGW campus. Waterways brings together works from Asian Indigenous and Asian Pacific artists and researchers to the island of Tiohtiá:ke to exchange knowledge on Asian-Indigenous relations in contemporary art. This exhibition considers the waters between the different islands and continents as a connector between each of the artists’ different lands rather than a barrier. This exhibition series seeks to foster a gathering space for knowledges, shared experiences, and ideas from around the globe.
The artists in Waterways speak to their relationships to water and islands through a range of interdisciplinary research-creation projects. These include, but are not limited to ethnography, engineering, oceanography, digital animation, and photography.
Starting June 12th, this series of exhibitions will take place in various sites of the SGW campus at Concordia University until the end of August.
All exhibitions are wheelchair accessible and free of admission.
