Future Memories (Present Tense): Contemporary Practices in Perspective

Sonny Assu, Mark Igloliorte, Meryl McMaster, Peter Morin, Rolande Souliere, Adrian Stimson

Future Memories (Present Tense) brings together six contemporary Indigenous artists from different regions of Canada, whose work diversely challenges linear ideas of time through story-telling. Each artwork uniquely relates to the theme by either surfacing silenced narratives, deconstructing current dominant narratives, or imagining a past yet to be. The exhibition considers how history, tradition, and personal narratives inform the construction of one’s own cultural identity as this fluctuates and re-arranges itself continuously. The authorial voices included in the selection not only open a window on how Indigenous communities and individuals wish to represent and project themselves today, but construct new scenarios, give shape to a possible future, poetically and politically rethinking our society in relation to selfhood.
