Coyote School [McMaster Museum of Art]

McMaster Museum of Art presents:

Coyote School

June 8 – August 19 2017
Curator:  Rhéanne Chartrand, Aboriginal Curatorial Resident, MMA
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 8, 6 - 8 pm

Coyote School presents contemporary works by eight mid-career Indigenous artists who acknowledge the influence of senior Indigenous artists on the development of their own artistic practice.

Included in the exhibition are works by Joi Arcand, Sonny Assu, Jason Baerg, Jordan Bennett, Christian Chapman, Amy Malbeuf, Meryl McMaster, Ehren “Bear” Thomas.

Through their visual and verbal stories, we learn that influence comes in many forms; through familial and kinship bonds, through formal and informal mentorships, and through artistic inspiration. Whether literal and visible or conceptual and covert, the influence of senior Indigenous artists on current and future generations of Indigenous artists is not taken for granted, but rather, held up, acknowledged, and honoured.

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 8, 6 - 8 pm
6:30
- Opening Remarks by Elders and Curator
7:00 - Musical Performance by acclaimed, Indigenous composer and vocal artist Jeremy Dutcher. A classically trained operatic tenor, Dutcher blends his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates.
