Our Work Is These Conversations

By Access Gallery
"Our Work Is These Conversations" features conversations between the participating artists of "Conditional Belonging," a multimedia exhibition at Access Gallery that foregrounds nuanced personal and communal narratives while enacting a temporary belonging of alternative ways of being, knowing, and making. Art Action Earwig, Taryn Goodwin, Maria-Margaretta, Sydney Pickering, Neena Robertson, and Tadafumi Tamura partner up into three pairs based on their own interests and engage in a discussion on common themes in their work, such as power relations, kinship, resistance, grieving and healing.

EP3: Is Personal Art Not Political?
In the final episode of Our Work Is These Conversations, Red River Métis artist Maria-Margaretta and Lil'wat artist Sydney Frances Pickering discuss strategies in navigating the colonial society as Indigenous women, such as storytelling, humour, and how their multi-disciplinary practices, especially beadwork, provide a space for personal archive, expressing confusion, grieving, and healing.
