SMASH: International Indigenous Weaving

About the exhibition:

Art Gallery of Greater Victoria

Apr 30, 2010 to Aug 22, 2010

SMASH will showcase work that is vital to an understanding of Aboriginal work from the Coast Salish, Micmaq, American Southwest, Alaskan, and Hawaiian regions.

The exhibition explored the influences of geographic boundaries; the unique materiality of the practice (including wool, bull rush, cedar root and bark, flax, etc); cultural and spiritual uses such as ceremonial naming, births, deaths, marriages and new songs; as well as confluences and contrasts in design concepts.
