Testify: Indigenous Laws + the Arts
September 29, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - November 13, 2018 @ 5:30 PM
Legacy Art Gallery Downtown
630 Yates Street, Victoria BC, V8W 1K9
09/29/2018 – 12/22/2018
This exhibition is a celebration of Indigenous Laws as expressed through art. This ongoing project is a curated pairing of artists and legal thinkers, working in conversation with each other to create art and written work about Indigenous laws and the opportunities for their dynamic expression as part of Canadian society. The Testify project invites dialogue that puts the idea of reconciliation into practice. It creates a space for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians to dream a way forward, which respects and reflects the diversity, strength and hope embodied within Indigenous traditions. The goal of Testify is to change the way society thinks about law and to challenge the absence of Indigenous laws in the landscape. Image: Nadya Kwandibens, Re:turning Home, film still, 2016.
