TORONTO.- The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery , Toronto, announces that its Fall 2022 exhibition, Arctic/Amazon: Networks of Global Indigeneity, will be open to the public October 1–December 31, 2022. Arctic/Amazon features the works of twelve artists from three continents, taking on issues of climate change, globalized Indigeneity, and contact zones in the Arctic and Amazon during a time of crisis.

The exhibition encompasses both new and existing works, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, and performance. Curated by Governor General’s Award–winning Indigenous curator and educator Dr. Gerald McMaster—alongside co-curator Dr. Nina Vincent and institutional curator Noor Alé— Arctic/Amazon seeks to shed light on the geopolitical and environmental sustainability issues currently informing artistic practices in these two vastly different, yet interconnected, regions.

Gaëtane Verna, Director & Artistic Director, says: “At a time when Canada is striving toward reconciliation, this exhibition platforms contemporary Indigenous culture across borders and continents. We are grateful for the dedication and expertise Gerald McMaster and Nina Vincent bring to this project and are confident that the accompanying publication will contribute invaluable insights to the study of Indigenous contemporary art.”

Highlights include:

● Olinda Reshijabe Silvano (Peru) will be collaborating with students from OCAD University on a new large-scale commission for The Power Plant and a mural at Toronto Metropolitan University

● Outi Pieski (Finland) will exhibit an installation using duodji, a Sámi craft tradition ● Large-scale photographic work by Uýra (Indigenous in diaspora) will be visible to passersby on the exterior of The Power Plant’s building

● Ontario-based Couzyn van Heuvelen (Canada) will be presenting a selection of sculptures both at the gallery and elsewhere in the city as part of Nuit Blanche, Toronto’s free all-night contemporary art event on October 1, 2022

The additional participating artists are:
● Tanya Lukin Linklater (United States/Canada)
● Máret Ánne Sara (Norway)
● Morzaniel Iramari (Brazil)
● Leandro Lima & Gisela Motta (Brazil)
● Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe (Venezuela)
● Sonya Kelliher-Combs (United States)
● Pia Arke (Greenland/Denmark)

The exhibition will be accompanied by a robust program of engaging events, talks, children’s workshops, and artist-led tours. The full program will be published on The Power Plant’s social channels and website in September 2022. The publication is expected to be launched in December 2022.
