net eth: going out of the darkness


NET ETH: Going Out of the Darkness documents a group exhibition of contemporary and traditional First Nations artists - among them Indian Residential School survivors and their descendants - whose work is a powerful testimony to the personal healing process. NET ETH is a Musqueam dialect metaphor for "the first light after the darkness, a time when you pray and cleanse your tools to make them strong". Here, the artwork reflects the process of "opening up to the light, so that we can all heal together" from the intergenerational trauma that is the legacy of Canada's Indian Residential School system. Participating artists: Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, Adrian Stimson, Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Raven John, Chris Bose, Jada-Gabrielle Pape, Richard Heikkilä-Sawan, Tania Willard, Lou-ann Ika'wega, Lindsay Delaronde, Mimi Gellman, Kelly Roulette, Patricia Lena Teichert, Ken Faris, Wayne Dennis and Jerry Whitehead.
