First installed outdoors during Montreal’s famed March 2019 Nuit Blanche festival, Concordia’s 4th Space is thrilled to show new audiencesMemory Keepers 1 | Gardiens des mémoiresduring theiNuit blanche gallery crawl. Memory Keepers 1is theresult of a week-long intensive art-creation workshop which took place at Concordia University in February 2019, wherein six visiting Inuit artists and one Montreal-based Algonquin artist developed individual and collaborative projects with a focus on installation, multimedia work, and digital art. The result is a dynamic mix of experimental video, sound, animation and projection based artworks that centre on the transmission of stories from the personal to the communal.
This project is a part of theMemory Keepersseries of one-night-only public exhibitions, an initiative of the SSHRC-funded Transactive Memory Keepers research project directed by Dr. Julie Nagam (University of Winnipeg), Dr. Carla Taunton (NSCAD University) and Dr. Heather Igloliorte (Concordia University). This particular project is also supported by the Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership SSHRC grant directed by Igloliorte, and the Indigenous Futures Cluster of the Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology.
