Wa’witłala: The Pervasiveness of Water/Cannot Go Against the Tide (to be exhibited in the future), is an ongoing project inspired by Dzawada’enuxw artist Marianne Nicolson’s work addressing river systems. This enquiry based collaborative project is being led by Nicolson and AGGV curators Nicole Stanbridge and Michelle Jacques.
The aim of Wa’witłala is to explore issues related to water from an Indigenous worldview and to create space for discussions across cultures and disciplines. Using pre-programs and workshops spaces such as Water Work Space, the goal is to make the process collaborative and transparent.
