Prefix ICA is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Nadia Myre featuring photographic, video and sound artworks that expand our understanding of the complexities of living as an Indigenous person in the twenty-first century. In these new works, Myre presents multiple subjects, objects, and sounds that speak beyond the limited notions of recognition. In this exhibition, the artist re-imagines and re-contextualizes images and materials to explore notions of Indigenous being within a framework of resistance and resilience.
Nadia Myre is an Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation and a Montreal-based interdisciplinary artist. Her evolving art practice explores the politics of belonging and emphasizes collaboration, community building and skill sharing as strategies for Indigenous futurity and cross-cultural understanding.
Betty Julian is an off-reserve citizen of Sipekne’katnik First Nation (Indian Brook First Nation) in Nova Scotia. Betty is the Adjunct Curator at Prefix ICA and a curator of contemporary art with a specialization in photography, film and video as art forms.
