Indigenous peoples have drawn connections across vast distances, continents, and bodies of water for thousands of years, revealing the space between us as a potential site for sharing knowledge, experience, and technology. Working from the Pacific view of water (moana and vai) as a mode of connection between islands, and by extension, Turtle Island (North America), these exhibitions will explore the transference of ideas through various media across geographic distances, timespans, and cultures. Together these artists delve into the sharing of knowledge and postulate locations of connection in the future, including imagined concepts of place.
Featuring works by Glenn Gear with solo exhibitions by Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Hana Rakena and Rachael Rakena.
