Reconcile This! exhibit

Arts Whistler’s latest exhibit features four Indigenous artists exploring the challenging themes surrounding Truth and Reconciliation as an avenue for activism and positive change. Reconcile This! is a contemporary look at the stereotypes perpetuated about Indigenous culture and delves into the pain, shame, and guilt left by the scars of residential schools and the systematic extraction of culture and language.

Reconcile This! invites you to join the conversation, encouraging collective reflection to foster a deeper sense of connection and healing in our society.

Participating artists: James Darin Corbiere, Levi Nelson, Raven John, and Caden Lane.

Reconcile This! is part of emhám: Celebrating Indigenous arts and knowledge. Proudly sponsored by RMOW, BCAC, Government of BC, Whistler Real Estate Company, Moguls and the Hilton Whistler.

Please note that the Gallery will be closed July 26-28 for a private event.
