Artists Sonny Assu, LessLIE and Marianne Nicolson have new work in Awakening Memory, a show running until April 29, 2017 at Open Space Gallery. Open Space is an artist-run centre, founded in 1972, located on the second floor of 510 Fort Street in Victoria.
“Awakening Memory focuses on both customary and contemporary stories to explore the history, agency and value of an art object from Indigenous perspectives.” Art critic Robert Amos comments: “Nicolson has prepared her panels with a sparkling slate colour to look something like rock. Then with red paint, she painted a rollicking scene of animals with a treasure box in a canoe.” The full article is at:
