The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba is excited to announce its new public exhibition venue: the AGSM Billboard. Over the next two years this 12’ x 30’ billboard will feature four projects that celebrate the Indigenous presence on this land, reflecting on the shared spaces, histories, and futures where Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples come together.
The first project in this series is The Crossing, by Colleen Cutschall, which maps a natural crossing point in the Assiniboine River, where various tribes and cultures came together for trade and exchange at the southeastern tip of what is now known as Brandon. As Canada marks its 150th anniversary of confederation, this project remind us of our deep history and the long-term relationships and treaties we entered into with a respectful and welcoming spirit, lasting as long as the river flows.
