SAW’s Nordic Lab presented the work of five Canadian Indigenous artists at the Supermarket Independent Art Fair in Stockholm. Curated by Interim Nordic Lab Director Joi T. Arcand, the exhibition opapāmacihowak (The Travellers) featured works that address futurity and Indigenous epistemologies. The Nordic Lab’s delegation to the fair, formed by the curator and three of the artists, took part in the fair’s Meetings program to discuss international residencies and exhibition opportunities for Indigenous artists from Canada.

Presented by SAW with the support of the Creating, Knowing and Sharing program of the Canada Council for the Arts
