What Stories Do We Tell?
Did you know that at Nanaimo Art Gallery we build our annual programs and exhibitions around shared inquiries? Each year we ask a big question that resonates in our community, providing a touchstone to guide and inspire our work.
Beginning in April 2022 our current inquiry, What Stories Do We Tell? will be extended over two years, allowing a wide range of voices and narratives to build on each other. Along with exhibitions, we’ll offer many exciting programs for you to connect with others, express yourself, tell stories, and share your passion for art.
Landing is an online home for Nanaimo Art Gallery’s offsite projects.
The website begins with an artwork: Eliot White-Hill Kwulasultun’s Qp’ilum (Landing), which was commissioned for this project. Eliot describes the work as “a conceptual representation of land and territory, which critiques the conventions of mapping and instead offers how the place called ‘Nanaimo’ exists from my perspective as a Snuneymuxw person.”
We are grateful to Canada Council for the Arts and BC Arts Council for their support of this project.
