Wrapped in Culture

Witness a world-first collaboration between the First Nations Peoples of Canada and Australia with the new QVMAG exhibition Wrapped in Culture, a powerful reclamation project grounded in community. The project was developed in November 2017 when 10 artists created traditional robes (a buffalo robe and possum skin cloak) over a 3-week workshop in Ottawa, Canada. The international joining of these two groups of artists revives two culturally distinct, yet similar, artistic traditions that were used historically for both sacred and practical purposes.
