In Anishnaabemowin, inaabiwin means “movement of light” and is used to describe lightning. Indigenous peoples embody a relational approach to understanding and interacting with the world which allows them to engage more deeply through complex relationships with themselves and the natural world. Through colonization, this way of being and knowing has been compromised. The artists in this exhibition use their varied art practices to reclaim these ways of being and knowing, hoping to restore compromised connections and encourage audiences to follow. As we seek to understand our place in the world, relearning these relations is essential, and will help us navigate today’s challenges and thrive on the lands we call home. Indigenous and non-Indigenous viewers will be encouraged to think about and feel their own relations and how they connect to larger worldviews. This project will be guided by Indigenous voices through researched texts, as well as through conversations and visits with respected knowledge keepers. Inaabiwin is also a metaphor for the work of the artists presented in this exhibition, who have remarkably profound and active practices that each evoke a strong visceral response.
