Visual Arts Exhibition

Proud­ly spon­sored by:

The 2017 Talk­ing Stick Fes­ti­val theme Kwèykw‘áystway serves as inspi­ra­tion for find­ing a wide vari­ety of works by a num­ber of artists whose visu­al prac­tice com­mu­ni­cates across media, Nations and generations. 

Fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of art­works from 11 mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary artists of Indige­nous ances­try, the exhi­bi­tion Kwèykw‘áystway: Speak­ing With One Anoth­er attempts to cre­ate gen­er­a­tive spaces for con­tem­pla­tion and con­ver­sa­tion using the vari­ety of expres­sion found in Indige­nous art today. The Round­house Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre serves as the meet­ing place for you, the audi­ence, to wit­ness some of the voic­es belong­ing to the Indige­nous arts community. 

This exhi­bi­tion includes a num­ber of artists who come from vary­ing areas of British Colum­bia or reside here. It seems only fit­ting to use the fes­ti­val theme as the title for this show because it is this place — the unced­ed ter­ri­to­ry of the Coast Sal­ish Nations — that brings us togeth­er today in cel­e­bra­tion of art and cul­ture.  By using a lan­guage belong­ing to this region we rec­og­nize the tra­di­tion­al ter­ri­to­ry and deep­en our rela­tion­ship to the land around us.
