MAYWORKS WINDSOR: Artist Talk with Yakonikulanetska Evangeline John
Tuesday, June 1, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
In celebration of Windsor’s MAYWORKS festival, Artcite and the Art Gallery of Windsor present an artist talk featuring Artcite’s BIPOC Artist-in-Residence: Yakonikulanetska Evangeline John. John will activate the Artcite gallery for a full month this summer. Yakonikulanestka’s art has always been Indigenous-focused, bringing awareness to Indigenous issues, and giving positive representations of Indigenous Peoples through art. Most importantly, she devotes her art to the continuation and revitalization of Indigenous art forms.
In this artist talk, John will discuss the artistic goals for their residency, their research, as well as their methods of using art to reconnect with the land, unlearn systems of oppression and heal from feelings of displacement.
