Land Protectors at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre

Saturday, 2 July, 2022 - 10:00am - Sunday, 4 December, 2022 - 10:00am

2 July–4 December 2022 Mauna Kea. Standing Rock. Kanesatake. Wet’suwet’en. These are a few of the many places on Turtle Island (North America) that are respected, honoured and continue to be safeguarded by Land Protectors in the face of extreme opposition. This exhibition pays tribute to the Indigenous artists and peoples who, since time immemorial, have protected something most precious to us all—the land. Works by Carl Beam, Rebecca Belmore, Robert Houle, Roy Kakegamic, Jane Ash Poitras, and other artists from Agnes’s collection, bring awareness to the consequences that arise if we over-exploit what Mother Earth provides.Curated by Paige Van TasselFind more: This exhibition is supported by the City of Kingston Arts Fund, Kingston Arts Council and Celebrating Agnes Fund, Queen’s University.
