Ociciwan Contemporary Art Centre’s inaugural exhibition, amiskwacîwâskahikan, features works by eight artists who reside in or hold a strong connection to Edmonton, Alberta. Rooted in family, land, and narrative, the artworks exhibited span across different mediums, time, and are anchored by generations of exploration, personal experiences and collective knowledge. 

amiskwacîwâskahikan known by generations of Indigenous peoples as a gathering place, becomes the foundation for the exhibition; a gathering of individual narratives that create a collective lift of layered dialogues and unique perspectives of indigeneity local to this territory.

Featuring works by: Jane Ash Poitras, MJ Belcourt Moses, Lauren Crazybull, Tanya Harnett, George Littlechild, Dwayne Martineau, Conor McNally, Lana Whiskeyjack

Doors Open at 6:00pm

Opening Remarks at 7:00 pm

Due to limited capacity in the building, we are offering two viewing times. First from 6pm to 8pm and second 8pm to 10pm.
