Nehirowisidigital - Meky Ottawa


  • La Guilde 1350 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montréal, QC, H3G 1J1 Canada (map)

From July 25 to September 29 The Guild , in partnership with Terres en vues , a society for the dissemination of Aboriginal culture and organizer of the Présence autochtone Festival , is proud to present Nehirowisidigital's latest exhibition of illustrations by emerging artist Meky Ottawa .

 

Bringing together eleven works on paper, some from the exhibition at the Mashteuiatsh Native American Museum, the works produced in 2017 will be presented for the first time in Montreal. Nehirowisidigital marks the first collaboration of The Guild with the artist, as well as his second solo exhibition at Tiohtià: ke (Montreal).

 

Modern and minimalist, her work halfway between the traditional and the contemporary, is strongly inspired by her Atikamekw culture and heritage, her feminist perspective and her everyday urban life. His humorous works are strongly committed and sometimes political, including through a reverse reappropriation.
