KMAWQEPIYAPON (We Are Sitting in the Same Circle)

Salle Premier Tech du Musée du Bas-Saint-Laurent
From Friday, June 10 to Sunday, September 25, 2022


The exhibition, curated by Wahsipekuk artist Ginette Kakakos Aubin, will be presented from June 10 to September 25, 2022, and brings together fifteen Aboriginal artists of the Wabanaki Confederacy from different communities (Wolastoqiyik, Mi'kmaq, Penobscot and Passamaquoddy) located in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Maine.

Such a gathering has never been held on Wolastokuk non-ceded territory in Quebec. The selected artists come from a variety of disciplines and cover a wide range of artistic practices: visual arts, dance, beadwork, basketry, ceramics and wood carving.

The exhibition will allow you to discover the richness of Indigenous cultures through the eyes of the following artists: Kateri Aubin Dubois, Ivanie Aubin-Malo, Mélanie Brière, Nancy E. Oakley, Tara Francis, Emma Hassencahl-Perley, Norma Jean Saulis, Ginette Kakakos Aubin, Geo Neptune, Shane Perley-Dutcher, Rae Pictou, Chantal Polchies, Justin Sappier, Allan Saulis and Alan Syliboy.

This project was made possible by the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

The exhibition is also supported by our financial partner, the Caisse Desjardins de Rivière-du-Loup.
