The Art of Faye HeavyShield will present work that spans thirty years of her practice. The exhibition situates HeavyShield as a major contributor to contemporary Indigenous art through her creation of a new aesthetic vocabulary. While bearing a resemblance to conceptual installation, her work is rooted in the deep art history of the Canadian prairies and in personal/communal experience. Arising from an intensive research project led by Felicia Gay, and guided by the personal ties between the artist and curator, the project will be multi-faceted in its approach. HeavyShield is a senior visual artist who has had a profound impact on Indigenous artists from the Northern Plains and across Turtle Island through an approach based on relationality, an aesthetics of humility, and her poetic visual articulations of Blackfoot language-all rooted within her cultural context as a Blackfoot (Blood) woman from the Kainai territory.
