The Path We Share: Charles Doucette, Fran Francis, Courtney Leonard, and Alan Syliboy
Curated by: David Diviney
Four First Nations artists have come together to take part in two creative residencies in Nova Scotia—one at The Deanery Project in Lower Ship Harbour in 2014, the other on Brier Island in 2015. The basis of this collaborative exchange is centered on reconciling the parallel journeys of the Mi'kmaq People and the whales of the North Atlantic. As artist Alan Syliboy states:
Through a self-directed framework of dialogue and artmaking, The Path We Share examines shared stories of contact and consequence to arrive at newfound forms of expression and understanding.
