Northern Indigenous Perspectives


Northern Indigenous Perspectives is a collective exhibition featuring 14 Indigenous artists and a variety of mediums such as painting, carving, beadwork, mixed-media, and installation work.

Driven and informed by an Indigenous creative team, this exhibition highlights the diversity of artists and art from across northern BC. Visitors will have access to indigenous artwork that crosses barriers through media, subject matter, and traditions.

This exhibition explores the unique character of each individual artist, inspired by and respectful of tradition, and represents their interpretation of that tradition. Visitors, both in person and online, will enjoy some of the diversity of indigenous art, giving voice to those who may not have been heard otherwise.

This exhibition has been a goal for the Smithers Art Gallery for many years. Working with Guest curator Stephanie Anderson, this initiative has allowed the gallery to connect with indigenous artists and provide space for their voices in a traditional gallery space.
