This ambitious and exciting group exhibition brought together the work of Black and Indigenous women artists whose works touch on issues of land, migration and food justice and sovereignty. Interwoven throughout the exhibition is an exploration of the kinds of relationships possible between Black and Indigenous women on this land. Their conversation will spark relearning and reimagining of histories through making, growing and forging connections across generations and geographies.
