Closing Reception – Jolie Bird and Alyssa ‘Sikapinakii’ Duck Chief

Reception: Friday, March 6th @2-4pm

Stride Gallery
1006 Macleod Trail S.E

Please join us for the closing reception for our Main Space and Project Space exhibitions. For the past two months, artists Jolie Bird and Alyssa Sikapinakii Duck Chief have been working in their respective installations. During this time, they generously shared their labour, processes and stories that are integral to the questions at the heart of their projects: for Bird, it is the potential in the sharing of process that may open up a connection to materiality, tactility, memories, and labour; for Duck Chief, it is the negotiation of vulnerability when sharing intimate and dear things, possibilities and limitations of photograph as a vehicle for storytelling, and most importantly, what healing through storytelling looks like. We are thrilled to celebrate the tender labour that Jolie and Alyssa have put into their work for the past two months. Mark your calendars!
