This particular bundle contains catalogues from some of the more well established artists in Indigenous Artistry whose exhibits have been featured at Woodland in the past. NATIVity is the catalgoue companion to Alan Michelson’s exhibit of the same name hosted at the Centre in the early 2000s; recent visitors to Woodland will recognize Michelson’s name from the popular Historicity exhibit, which called Woodland home from late 2018 to early 2019. It Takes Time is the catalogue companion to Ron Noganosh’s exhibit of the same name, which utilized found items to focus on contemporary social issues of territory, culture, self governance and language, among others, faced by Indigenous communities. This particular catalogue, and thus Noganosh, was the recipient of the Canadian Museum Association for Outstanding Achievement in 2001. Finally, Transitions is a catalogue which features artists whose exhibits have visited the Centre, and those who we can only hope to some day support, including but not limited to: Robert Houle, Shelley Niro, Johnny Pootoogook, Mattiusi Iyaituk, James Ungalaq and many more!
