3 TO JULY 2 ~ Station Gallery

Station GalleryBarry Ace: Nayaano-nibiimaang Gichigamiin | The Great Lakes
Reception: Saturday, June 3 at 1PM
Nayaano-nibiimaang Gichigamiin presents a new series of honouring blankets for the Five Great Lakes. Hudson Bay trade blankets are adorned with unique Anishinaabe blanket strips that remix intricately designed floral motifs and geometric iconography composed of traditional glass-cut beads and contemporary electronic components (capacitors, resistors, and diodes). Each blanket is a homage to a specific Great Lake and retells Anishinaabeg historical and cultural narratives through the use of mnemonic iconography and code embedded into each blanket strip. The suite of contemporary honouring blankets are witness to the persistence of Anishinaabeg cultural continuity, through the confluence of the historical and contemporary.
