Event Description

Tuesday – Saturday, 4:30pm – 10:00pm. Legacy Sidewalk Gallery.

Curated by Nicole Achtymichuk (UVic, BSc ’20, Young Canada Works Curatorial Intern)

What the Land Holds is a contemporary video art exhibition that examines the land as integral to Indigenous histories and futures, and as a site of ongoing colonization and alienation. The land holds layers of interpretation that establish places of inclusion and exclusion. The land holds what humans have created, blurring the lines between natural and artificial. The land holds stories and teachings, and returning to these is essential to our continued survival on the land.

This is the inaugural exhibition in Legacy’s new Sidewalk Gallery, a space designed to activate and inspire community collaborations and to make art more accessible to the public.
