For immediate release
Odanak, February 19, 2020 – The Musée des Abénakis is proud to present its 2020 exhibitions’s programming.
Worlds of the night – until January 8, 2021
The best stories are told at night, when the atmosphere is full of mysteries and your mind is ready to experience a range of emotions. Wander the clear, dark ambience of the Worlds of Night exhibit and find out what’s going on inside and outside your brain as the sun sets. Surely you will not close your eyes at night!
Worlds of the night, produced by the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science, relies on a clear, dark atmosphere to provide a fun and rewarding experience. Children can finally spend the night standing, camping under the stars, playing hide and seek in the labyrinth and having fun with stuffed animals from the desert.
Tolakonutome. She is telling a story – until December 11, 2020
Through 20 works that include paintings and works on paper, the Maliseet artist, Ginette Kakakos Aubin, guides us through her own story. This exhibition is based on the exploration of the artist’s indigenous origins – a real search for her cultural roots and their updating. Her works are inspired by primitive arts, objects, clothing and embroidery from her ancestors who also serve as catalysts for creation.
With many participations in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the United States and Europe, Ginette Kakakos Aubin has stood out thanks to the quality and authenticity of her works and her active presence in the artistic world.
