event title

Pizandawatc / The One Who Listens / Celui qui écoute is a major survey of the multidisciplinary work of Anishinaabe / French artist Caroline Monnet, examining the deep connections between land, language, and cultural transmission. Presenting a range of connected new and existing works, Pizandawatc offers a comprehensive view of Monnet’s complex aesthetic vocabulary, polyvalent material dexterity, and cohesive conceptual investigation. Combining the vocabulary of Anishinaabe visual culture with industrial materials, Monnet’s sculptures, mixed media works, videos, and installations expand on the centrality of the land and its resources in Anishinaabe spirituality, history, and resilience.

This event is free and all are welcome.
