Over the course of the year, Open Space has collaborated on a series of distinguished exhibitions with the Victoria Native Friendship Centre (VNFC). This four-part exhibition series is comprised of selected works from the VNFC archive of Urban Aboriginal Art. Tahltan Curator-in-residence Peter Morin worked closely with Leslie McGarry (Cultural Programs Liaison) and Shona Collision (Community Health Liaison) to develop the exhibitions. The Victoria Native Friendship Centre collection is a growing archive of urban aboriginal artists, telling the stories and celebrating the achievements of VNFC’s decades of community service to urban aboriginal populations. This collection is an important chapter in contemporary arts communities of British Columbia and Canada.
