Curated by Justin Ducharme in collaboration with the Artist… this year’s Festival offers a pop-up exhibit featuring new and retrospective works from artist Zachery Longboy.
Longboy is from Churchill, Manitoba and is of Sayisi Dene lineage. This new and retrospective collection continues the artists’ exploration within a fractured cultural experience through deeply felt layered videos, paintings and archival film.
The exhibit is co-presented with the SUM Gallery and runs from August 20th to 25th. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 12-6pm.
Join us for an intimate artist salon on Sunday, August 25th before the Festival’s Closing Gala from 1-3pm.
