Skawennati | Teiakwanahstahsontéhrha’ | We Extend the Rafters

A children’s exhibition designed for kids aged 5 to 11.

September 21 – November 1, 2020

My name is Iotetshèn:’en, and I live on Earth—usually. Our planet is united under the Great Law of Peace. […] Earth has been attacked by more than one visitor from outerspace, and our harmonious way of life is being threatened. So for now, my home is this spaceship. We are travelling to the first meeting of the five nearest, friendliest planets in our galaxy. The goal of our mission is to create a union that will protect us from attacks and also help us share our very different knowledges. I have been invited on this historic voyage because I have a special power…

Thus begins The Peacemaker Returns, a futuristic saga set in 3025 yet firmly rooted in the ancestral Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) confederation story and featuring historical figures such as Tekanawí:ta, Jacques Cartier, and a president addicted to Twitter! This new machinima—an animation-style movie produced on the virtual reality platform Second Life—is the core of the children’s exhibition Teiakwanahstahsontéhrha’ | We Extend the Rafters, designed specifically for kids aged 5 to 11 by Skawennati. Audiences of all ages are invited to (re)discover some traditions in the artist’s “museum of the future,” an original installation. A guided tour and a collective workshop in the form of an innovative board game will encourage young and mature viewers alike to (re)learn history from an Indigenous perspective and imagine how all people can contribute to the world of tomorrow, reminding us how History, like any other narrative, is a construction defined by those who tell it.

The Teiakwanahstahsontéhrha’ tour benefits from the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. This exhibition was produced in 2017 by VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine in partnership with Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace (AbTeC) and Obx Labs, with financial support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications and the City of Montreal under the Agreement on the Cultural Development of Montreal, as well as the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th.

DON RUSSELL | IF THESE WOODS COULD SPEAK

In Conversation with Peter Schuler
September 21 – November 1, 2020

IF THESE WOODS COULD SPEAK features paintings by Don Russell and photographs by Peter Schuler, whose work makes use of the mirrored image as a beginning place.  What is revealed through this process often seems to speak out to us in such a way as to introduce another kind of presence within the image.  Faces and bodies emerge informing the viewer of their existence, which seems to be a deliberate communing between the human and non-human world.

Raheel Patel Artist in residence

ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE | RAHEEL PATEL

September 21 – November 1, 2020

Patel’s art practice began in Ahmedabad, the capital city of Gujarat, India. In Gujarat, natural dyes and Lippan mud are used to decorate traditional Kutch homes. By upcycling mirrors and objects Patel’s work reflects folk art history while exploring new cultural narratives to promote environmental social change.

Here at the AGM, Patel uses his residency to inform and celebrate sustainable art practises, while transforming the space to engage visitors. Patel is an artist and cultural worker who lives in Mississauga and works at his studio in Port Credit. We are delighted to have him here at the AGM and to introduce him to visitors of all ages.
