Your Old Way Kind of Vision brings together the works of four artists–Siku Allooloo, Catherine Blackburn, Wally Dion and Charlene Vickers–who explore their Indigenous backgrounds through distinct artistic practices. Using Allooloo’s poem as a jumping off point, the exhibition uplifts ways of seeing, living and making that evoke a sense of possibility, return and expansion in relation to contemporary Indigenous identities. Through a diversity of approach, each artist builds nuance through materials and ideas that speak equally of traditional material cultures and contemporary vision. Far from a dichotomy of past and present, Your Old Way Kind of Vision expresses a deeply layered and sensory engagement, highlighting an expansive re-imagining of traditional concepts – and the practices that are shaping Indigenous contemporary art into the future.
