Exhibit: Changing Landscapes

2024 Group Show

Changing Landscapes highlights work made by emerging and mid-career artists from across the South Shore region. This multi-media exhibition consists of work made in response to contemporary concerns such as extreme weather, human activity, climate catastrophe, decolonization, migration, climate justice, wildlife habitat conservation, and more.

The Western tradition of landscape painting is linked to colonial history in its standardization of the settler gaze and erasure of Indigenous presence. The works in Changing Landscapes depict scenes across the land of Mi’kma’ki, home to the Mi’kmaq people, whose rights to water, land, languages, traditions, food sovereignty and a healthy environment for future generations are all of our responsibilities to protect.

The DesBrisay Museum acknowledges that our museum is situated on the traditional and contemporary territory of the Mi’kmaq people, which is covered by the Treaties of Peace and Friendship.

We are all Treaty people.
