This summer, EXPRESSION invites you to the exhibition Creation stories: Supernatural from The Biennale d’art contemporain autochtone (BACA). 

Beyond scientific understanding and the laws of nature, supernatural storytelling lies. Stories across our diverse communities relay ways of creation and belief systems that inform our cultural practices and ultimately, our identities. Familiar characters, such as the Trickster, appear in many communities offering us guidance and ways of challenging societal norms. Teachable moments are embedded in many of these stories, to pass along valuable lessons to future generations. And perhaps, the most common and important stories are those of creation. The stories of where we come from as Nations is what makes us Indigenous Peoples and it is within these stories that we find our beliefs, voices, and powers.

The artworks featured in EXPRESSION are, each in their own right, strong but when put together become significantly impactful and thought-provoking. Each artist brought with them striking compilations in a variety of media including installation, sculpture, painting, drawing, and video work. The mere size of many of the works are otherworldly, not to mention their content. We ask audience members to allow yourselves to be embraced by the supernatural.

Join us on June 29 for the opening of the exhibition Relations végétales presented at Jardin Daniel A. Séguin from 10 a.m. to noon, in the presence of artist Annie-France Leclerc and curator Ariel Rondeau.
Presented by EXPRESSION, the exhibition Relations végétales takes place at Jardin Daniel A. Séguin and will run for two seasons, until October 27, 2024. 

Three creative mornings, including an interactive tour of the exhibition Relations végétales, are offered to families on July 2, 9 and 16, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The activities are offered in French. 
For more information and registration forms, see our calendar of activities.
