Launch Reception for ‘Gichitwaawizi’igewin: Honouring’

Conrad Grebel University
Grebel Gallery, 140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, Ontario
Canada N2L 3G6

Join us for a reception celebrating the next Grebel Gallery exhibit, ‘Gichitwaawizi’igewin: Honouring’. In this exhibit, artist Catherine Dallaire re-examines the original indigenous values in animals and plant life that are vilified by contemporary Western settler culture.

Catherine is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose work possesses unique form and energy, balancing elements and teachings from traditional Woodland art/Anishinaabe art/culture with contemporary techniques and subjects. Catherine’s work aims to build and maintain a balanced relationship between her ancestry, and also call attention to our relations in the natural world.

Building understanding between indigenous and non-indigenous worldviews is an important step toward peace and conciliation in the Canadian context. Creating space for indigenous wisdom to guide culture and policy is an integral part of building peace and justice.

We invite you to join us on January 17, at 4:00 pm to hear more about this exhibit.

Please let us know you’ll be attending by registering online.
