When Raven Became Spider

Description

Exhibition runs from July 20 to August 28 at Orillia Museum of Art and History.

Additional Information

Joi T. Arcand, Sonny Assu, Shaun Beyale, Julianne Herney, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Jeffrey Veregge

Taking its title from a body of work by Sonny Assu, depicting Spiderman in a traditional Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw style, When Raven Became Spider examines supernatural characters in Indigenous stories and contemporary comic books. These artists and storytellers depict Indigenous super-beings using popular comic book imagery, blurring the line between oral and graphic storytelling. Can their characters, in their new forms, still transmit old-world oratory tales, teaching us something about the frail human condition?
