Cannupa Hanska Luger: Every One & Kali Spitzer: Sister

Fri Aug 30, 2019 to Jan 15, 2020All Day

Lobby Display

The crisis surrounding murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls, trans, and queer community members continues, with thousands of documented cases in both Canada and the U.S.

The Gardiner presents the Canadian premiere of artist Cannupa Hanska Luger’s Every One, a monumental social sculpture commemorating victims of the crisis. Every One consists of over 4,000 individual ceramic beads, made in workshops and studios across Canada and the U.S. by people directly affected by the crisis. Together, the beads take on the image of a single woman. The image references and stands in solidarity with the photograph Sister by First Nations photographer Kali Spitzer, which will also be on view.
