Humour as Medicine

October 7 to November 27, 2021

Artists: Sonny Assu (Ligwiłda’xwnjik), Lori Blondeau (Cree/Salteaux/Metis), Hjalmer Wenstob (Nuu-chah-nulth),

Curated by Jenelle M. Pasiechnik

This group exhibition presents contemporary Indigenous art from the prairies and west coast that addresses how humour can be a powerful coping mechanism for trauma and emotional distress. Underpinning the show is the goal to explore humour as a tool for healing, activism, and open communication.
