Vernissage | BEADING NOW! - perlage contemporain

Opening | BEADING NOW! - Contemporary Beading

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - 6 to 8 PM

BEADING NOW!, a contemporary beadwork exhibition, brings together the works of 11 artists who were selected for the way they developed their own artistic technique around beadworking. The works of Judy Anderson, Catherine Blackburn, Teresa Burrows, Hannah Claus, Ruth Cuthand, Dayna Danger, Sarah Maloney, Audie Murray, Mike Patten, Sylvain Rivard, and Nico Williams shown during Beading now! serve as an excellent overview of beadworking. The goal of this exhibition is to create a place where Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists can exchange thoughts and ideas. In order to encourage intergenerational discourse, objects from La Guilde’s own collection will be an important part of this exhibition. The presented artworks will create new narratives.

The exhibition will open on Thursday, May 16, from 6 to 8 PM with several artists and the exhibition curator. This event will also mark the launch of the catalog which contains explanations on the artworks of the artists in their mother tongue.
