The Art of Faye HeavyShield
The Art of Faye HeavyShield gathers the seminal works of a celebrated contemporary Indigenous artist, covering 40 years of artistic expression.
HeavyShield, who is a Blackfoot (Blood) woman from the Kainai territory, is known for her installations, drawings, and writing imbued with memory, ancestral and personal, celebration of kinship, and stories of home and place.
Arising from an intensive research project led by Felicia Gay and guided by the personal ties between the artist and curator, the exhibition is multi-faceted in its approach. The Art of Faye HeavyShield is built on the bones of memory and story and embraces an ethic of relationality, making this exhibition an unmissable encounter with the work of this celebrated senior visual artist.
