Change Makers aims to re-evaluate the relationship between Aboriginal and Western cultures. This exhibition celebrates the Art Gallery of Mississauga’s recent commitment to the study and exhibition of Indigenous art while providing diverse responses to what it means to be Indigenous today. Through their works, the artists engage with ideas of self-representation to question colonial narratives and present parallel histories while exploring relationships between the spiritual, the uncanny and every day.
