Double exhibition opening | Luke Parnell & Alan Syliboy

Thursday, July 20, 2023 - 5:30 to 8 PM

La Guilde, in partnership with LAND in SIGHTS, invites you to a double exhibition opening celebrating the work of Luke Parnell and Alan Syliboy. From July 20 to September 10, come immerse yourself in colourful worlds whose tales will sweep you away!

In the exhibition Starlight, Nisga'a and Haida artist Luke Parnell delves into the relationship between oral histories and Indigenous artistic practices on the Northwest Coast, particularly interested in exploring narratives of transformation. Using woodworking, silkscreening, performance or even video, his work is a vehicle for storytelling, regularly evoking deeply personal facets.

s part of the International First Peoples’ Festival, Mi’kmaw artist Alan Syliboy’s exhibition, There are Spirits in the Forest, highlights his own artistic vocabulary created from Indigenous Mi’kmaq petroglyph tradition. Exploring themes of family, spirituality, struggle and strength, he uses the layering of symbols and markmaking to create depth and texture in his works.

In order to anticipate the number of visitors, we invite you to register.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
