#hopeandhealingcanada with Tracey-Mae Chambers

June 6 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Tracey-Mae Chambers as she creates her site-specific art installation #hopeandhealingcanada at PAMA. Stop by throughout the day or follow along with @visitPAMA on Instagram to see the process. The installation will be on display until Sep 1.

“Since July 2021 I have created over 100 installations at residential school historical sites, museums, art galleries and other public spaces. Many of these spaces serve to present a colonial viewpoint, and primarily speak about the settlers who arrived and lived here, but not the Indigenous people that were displaced along the way. The installations are constructed with red wool, silk, cotton yarn. Red is the colour of blood. Red is the slur against Indigenous people. Red is the colour of passion and anger, danger and power, courage and love. I am hoping to bridge the gap between settlers and Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit people by creating art that is approachable and nonconfrontational, and starting a conversation about decolonization and reconciliation.”
