A bit about our exhibitions:

"Born Celestial"
Kaya Joan, Natalie King, Nicole Neidhardt, Celeste Pedri-Spade
Performances by Danielle Boissoneau and Chyler Sewell
Curated by Alex Jacobs-Blum

June 10 – August 13, 2022

Hamilton Artists Inc. is pleased to present Born Celestial, an exhibition curated by our Indigenous Curator in Residence, Alex Jacobs-Blum. Featured artists include Kaya Joan, Natalie King, Nicole Neidhardt and Celeste Pedri-Spade, as well as performances by Danielle Boissoneau and Chyler Sewell on July 20th.

The deep impact of colonial harms on Indigenous communities necessitates the emergence of new potentialities.

By using storytelling to collapse the future into the present, Born Celestial imagines unearthed futures beyond settler colonialism where Indigenous knowledge systems thrive. Born Celestial embodies futurities, drawing from human and other-than-human relations, community and familial knowledge, star systems, and Creation stories. Empowering a (re)connection to self and an uplifting of community, Born Celestial inspires healing and hopeful pathways for the seven generations to come.


"Destabilization: The Colour of Our Skin"

Heidi McKenzie and Shantel Miller

June 10 – July 16, 2022

Heidi McKenzie and Shantel Miller come together to present gestures of resistance and depict acts of survival as two women of colour who navigate their lived experiences on the margins of white-dominant patriarchal culture.

Each artists’ aesthetic narratives operate on both the deeply personal – through self-portraiture, abstract or figurative – as well as the universal, by validating brown bodies through archival practices of touching and whispering wisdom through familial legacy.
