#TPPReflects: “When I look back to past #ThePowerPlantTO exhibitions my first thought is of 'Beat Nation: Art, Hip Hop and Aboriginal Culture' from our Winter 2013 season. In this exhibition over 20 Indigenous artists – including the recently exhibited Maria Hupfield – mixed traditional and contemporary modes of expression. Together, they created powerful cultural hybrids to address critical issues such as land and language rights, reflecting the current realities of Aboriginal life and identity." More about Beat Nation: bit.ly/2sYTbC1

As we reflect on Canada’s history in our 150th year, The Power Plant also pauses to consider the institution’s 30 years as Canada's leading contemporary art gallery. Looking towards the future, we want to honour and remember those who were a part of 30 year legacy, thank them for their contribution, and invite them to continue on this journey with our 30 for 30 Giving Campaign. Join us! Share your memory using #TPP30for30 and donate today: bit.ly/TPP30for30

Please come and see my sculpture '11 Ships' in the Sculpture at Barangaroo exhibition opening August 5. My sculpture, created with 12 other indigenous artists, is a commentary on the impact of the arrival of the first fleet. 11 masts will hold 3 "sails" , each painted with the artist's own significant totems, dreaming stories or cultural reflection. We'd love to see you there! #firstnationsart #aboriginalart #yuinnation #aboriginalart #aboriginalpride #aboriginalpeople #barangaroo #sculpture

I am so thrilled to announce the FUNDRAISING campaign for the second session of Grant River Arts, a small, cultural relationship-building art program bringing children, communities, and artists together from Six Nations and their Canadian neighbours. Peace, mutual understanding, and respect through art 💜💜💜 we are hosted this time around by @kayanase.greenhouse 💜this project is inspired by the Six Nations Pen Pal initiative which ran for 10 years, and comes as a result of collaboration with a small group of language speakers, educators, and the guidance of some wonderful Six Nations citizens.

This is an old piece of mine that hangs in our living room. The gouges are deep and I used industrial staples to create a mass in the upper portion of the house. Steel stitches weave around the perimeter. I like the composition and energy that this pieces has.

Hey, thanks Don! #coastsalish #art - #haida #indigenous #northwestcoast artwork. #firstnationsart - Not usually in the market for a shot glass, but I will consider it a small, glass canvas. :) The design is beautiful. It's a nice #gift. #vancouverbc
The old mural of famous BC faces is being covered by new pieces from Indigenous artists: Haisla Collins, Jerry Whitehead, Sharifah Marsden, Mehren Razmpoosh, Richard Shorty, and Vanessa Walterson

The background colours of black, white, yellow, and red represent the four directions of the medicine wheel and the three realms (earth, sky, and sea) of the peoples who live along the Northwest Coast. The mural is meant to honour all the First Peoples of Canada, their cultures, stories, and understandings.

The fires by the shores as the tall ships entered the Sydney Harbour, 1788. Those white dots, all the peering eyes of the original people of this land. This is Aunty Denise's vision, for the upcoming sculpture -11 ships- that moved her to tears thinking about. By no means was this land terra nullius. #aboriginalart #kamilaroipride #indigenouspride #indigenouswomen #firstnation #firstnations #firstnationsart #weexist #firstfleet #elders

More incredible masks at the Island Museum of Art. Awakshum, Wild
Woman, by legendary Kwakwaka'wakw artist Beau Dick. This one was crazy alive!

Wild Woman of the Woods, is a mythic being with dark skin and hair, about twice the size of a human being. She reputedly has great wealth, although by reputation she is slow-witted and has poor eyesight. She captures children and carries them in a basket on her back, planning to take them home to eat; the children typically manage to outsmart her and escape.

Shout out to the wonderful creative team of 'The Weekend'!

A rich collection of First Nations American Northwest Coast art housed in this starkly beautiful glass and concrete building. Appreciated learning about MOA UBC's preservation work and collaboration with community members to accurately and respectfully present these works. One of my favorite places to visit in Vancouver - worth the 40 min bus ride from the city center! #latergram #moaubc #museumofanthropology #ubcvancouver #visitvancouver #firstnationsart #canadafirstnations #concreteglass

New Arrival Sisiutl Sculpture by Shawn Karpes

Red cedar wood, Acrylic paint 
Shawn Karpes was born in Vancouver, B.C., on May 12th 1968. His training began in 1982 with George Hunt Jr., Jim Gilbert and Victor Newman during a Native art program sponsored by three levels of Victoria public schools. In this program Shawn began experimenting in three dimensional form and began concentrating on basic design, painting and woodcarving.

For the past three years Shawn has been working for the carving program at the Royal British Columbia Museum. In 2001 he volunteered to work on the ITUSTO restoration of the world’s tallest totem pole at Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, B.C.

Rainy day in Whistler, and since we're not an all-in-downhill-mountain-biking-in-the-mud kind of family, we opted for the Audain Art Museum instead, one of the newest museums focusing on British Columbian art- from traditional First Nations masterpieces to contemporary Canadian photography, sculpture, and installations. Really worth a see if you're in the area 👌🏻⭐️
