Experience Woodland

Moving Forward: The Next Fifty Years

November 26, 2022 – February 4, 2022

The exhibition Moving Forward: The Next Fifty Years takes a look back at the legacy of the past 50 years of WCC exhibition history: artists with local to national recognition who have passed through the gallery doors during their artistic career and the contribution made to support artists in pivotal inter-national exhibitions that have impacted Indigenous art history in Canada.

Through a collection of ephemera; photographs, exhibition catalogues, brochures and artefacts, pivotal exhibition moments throughout the decades become central to the narrative that bring together icons of the artworld and celebrate the diversity of artistic practice. The exhibition features films from the National Film Board of Canada and its history with Indigenous filmmakers/directors. WCC continues to screen films throughout the year. Also, introducing Cody Houle, visual artist, as Artist-in-Residence. Come watch him create new work on-site from Tuesday-Friday during regular Museum hours.
