7: THE PROFESSIONAL NATIVE INDIAN ARTISTS INC.
7: The Professional Native Indian Artists Inc. looks at an early artist alliance that demanded professional recognition and stimulated a new way of thinking about aboriginal peoples and their art. Sometimes called the Indian Group of Seven, the alliance incorporated in 1974 and was known for political work that addressed historical and contemporary realities. The exhibition brings together more than 100 works by Jackson Beardy, Eddy Cobiness, Alex Janvier, Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, Carl Ray and Joseph Sanchez.
Sept. 21 to Jan. 12 at the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina
