Wrapped in Culture

November 15 - November 23, 2017

A powerful reclamation project grounded in community engagement.

Wrapped in Culture involves six Australian Aboriginal artists working with four Canadian Indigenous artists. Together, they will create one Blackfoot buffalo robe and one Australian Aboriginal possum skin cloak.

Wrapped in Culture is an extended performance art project that unfolds through a series of workshops. Ten artists will work at CUAG from 10 am – 4 pm on November 15-17 as well as November 20-22, and from 12-4 pm on November 18. You are welcome to drop by and observe the artists while they work!

Wrapped in Culture will be presented at the Ottawa Art Gallery in fall 2018.
