18 Jul FROM SMOKE TO CYBER SIGNALS
August 3 – September 1 2017
As part of the exhibition From Smoke to Cyber Signals, Abenaki artist Carmen Hathaway explores cultural reminiscences and indigenous influences using digital and contemporary expressions. The exhibition addresses various themes such as communication mode, symbolic and semiological representations that link contemporary indigenous experience with the legacy of the past.
In this project, the artist proposes an innovative alliance between traditional culture and artistic exploration through state-of-the-art digital tools, offering a unique blending of cultures that inhabit and present to viewers a different interpretation of contemporary indigenized world view. The exhibition will be presented at Ashukan Cultural Space as part of the Montreal First Peoples’ Festival.
