    This media art + group exhibition curated by Cree/Métis artist Cheryl L'Hirondelle is meant to be a dialogue between selected work by seven Indigenous and non-native artists to illustrate how we inhabit, make actions, document time-space, and in doing so, how we are all staking claim to territories whether physical, aesthetic, conceptual and/or virtual.
