Practical Guide to Localization

Open Studio

Toronto, ON

June 10 - July 23, 2022


The creative starting point for this exhibition, A Practical Guide to Localization, by Native Art Department International (NADI) is a custom-made traffic barrier that has been taken apart and re-assembled in an improvised fashion. This gesture counters the expected aesthetic experience of a centre primarily known for printmaking. The materially versatile works exhibited in A Practical Guide to Localization are informed by their shared interests in place, memory, and language. Through the exhibition, Indigenous verbal form is given visual form. It is intended to be a biographical space composed of objects, images, reflections and sensations.
