Àbadakone | Continuous Fire | Feu continuel, the second exhibition in the National Gallery of Canada’s series of presentations of contemporary international Indigenous art, features works by more than 70 artists identifying with almost 40 Indigenous Nations, ethnicities and tribal affiliations from 16 countries, including Canada.
Àbadakone animates both galleries and public spaces with art in all media, including performance art, video and commissioned installations, complemented by a dynamic program of workshops, performances, film screenings, talks, and more.
Building on themes of continuity, activation, and relatedness, this exhibition explores the creativity, concerns and vitality of Indigenous art from virtually every continent. Àbadakone is led by National Gallery of Canada curators Greg A. Hill, Christine Lalonde and Rachelle Dickenson, with consulted curators Candice Hopkins, Ariel Smith and Carla Taunton, as well as a team of advisors from around the globe.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience compelling contemporary art, as Àbadakone taps into and amplifies the global pulse of Indigenous artistic production.
