24-page colour catalogue features artwork by the acclaimed Anishinaabe visual artist. At the core of the exhibition, which includes 26 works created between 1998 and 2015, sit four new works exhibited for the first time, within a figurative narrative, each depicting a different shaman and that shaman's power: healing touch, taking away pain, passing down traditions, dreaming the not dreamable.

"Together, the works in Shaman Dream in Colour offer compelling insights into the lived histories and visionary travels of the artist, drawing us into the continued power and inexhaustible depths of a dream." - David McIntosh, Associate Professor, Media Studies at OCADU

Join us for the Artist Reception on Saturday, April 23, from 2-4 pm. Mr. John Kearsey, Vice-President (External), University of Manitoba, will give his opening remarks at 2:30 pm.
