Ga:hǫh ne’ hni’ ga:howe:kso/Covered and Uncovered – An Online Auction of Face Masks

2PM

Cost: FREE

 

WCC’s National Call for Submission has requesting Indigenous artists to create new original works of art in the form of a face mask in response to the new realities created by the global coronavirus pandemic impacting so many Indigenous communities across the country.
Indigenous artists continue to find creative methods that share cultural knowledge and provide a guiding light and offer hope and resilience. Artists are asked to create a face mask that now has become universal, omnipresent and mandated. They are a blessing and a curse; they keep you safe yet obstruct our interactions and expressions. Masks have become personalized yet they are uncomfortable and make it difficult to breathe.
Artists were asked: “What do masks represent to you and how do you view it?”
*WCC will host our first online fundraising auction in mid-April with 50% of proceeds shared with artists and 50% to support WCC programs, specifically School Visits & Educational Programming and Exhibitions.*
