We Remain Certain at McMaster Museum of Art

July 8

The McMaster Museum of Art opens two exhibitions early this year. On view now, We Remain Certain explores Haudenosaunee land tenure and the complex history, treaty agreements, and displacements along the Grand River. Opening on February 13, Futures presents works by multimedia artist Rajni Perera that explore imagined futures in which mutated subjects exist in dystopian realms.

We Remain Certain
January 9 – March 22, 2024
Curated by Protect the Tract

We Remain Certain shows the enduring relationship between Haudenosaunee and their home in Grand River Territory. A group exhibition curated by a collective of Haudenosaunee artists, these contemporary works explore Haudenosaunee land tenure and the complex history, treaty agreements, and displacements along the Grand. This exhibition strives to generate thought and conversation as a means to guide relationships by employing Haudenosaunee “Original Instructions” as a foundation of understanding and collaborating on our shared future.
