The artworks in the exhibition Northern Contemporary showcased at Arnica Artist Run Centre July 15 to August 27 offer a direction in contemporary artistic practice that embraces traditions and experiences of northern Canada while offering a new take on the subject matter and cultural references. The works at Arnica are discrete views into the otherworldly nature of the Northwest Territories and bring a wealth of new knowledge, skills, expression and concerns in a varied group of approaches—from sound sculpting to painting to photography to traditional beading—that provides a complex intertextual relationship meant to share the experience of northerners and perhaps question our own notions of life north of the 60th.
