Free Press: Exhibit poses questions on the way Indigenous, non-Indigenous people relate to each other
A discussion on the bright potential for collaboration between communities is happening in the halls of the University of Manitoba’s School of Art.
Sébastien Aubin’s no brighter in the middle is currently on exhibit in the school’s gallery until April 13. The show, which opened on Feb. 26, is the culmination of Aubin’s six month term as the university’s inaugural Indigenous designer in residence….
The 39-year-old from Opaskwayak Cree Nation said no brighter in the middle is the starting point for a conversation about contemporary and historical relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in North America.
“It’s a community oriented work, what I’ve done here in regards to Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, so that they can come and see the show and probably get into a dialogue with each other and maybe share a moment that’s positive,” Aubin said.
