Artist and curator talks during the reception on Oct 24th at 5:30-6:30pm

Exhibition is Proudly Presented by A Space Gallery and imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival
Supported by the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective

The works of the seven artists in this exhibition portray individual ideas of motion and movement which, together, become testimony for the tenacity and dynamism of Indigenous cultures today and into the future. In Indigenous languages, verbs encode concepts of motion that include people, tense, location and direction. I:ke – I have motion (Mohawk) explores physical and metaphorical constructs that reveal imagineNATIVE notions of change, mobility, flow and transformation. The works in this exhibition complement and extend the vigorous program of films and videos selected for imagineNATIVE’s 15th anniversary festival.
