Boarder X brings together new work by Indigenous artists that use snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing to show knowledge and relationships to the land. Featuring: Jordan Bennett, Roger Crait, Steven Davies, Mark Igloliorte, Mason Mashon, Meghann O’Brien, and Les Ramsay.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada, Vernon Ah Kee: cantchant connects surfboards and video with Australian Aboriginal territory. Ah Kee’s boards reflect traditional shield designs in the colours of the Australian Aboriginal flag, and on the flip side, beautifully drawn portraits of family.
