September 27 – November 10, Massy Arts will host “the road home through the woodlands in search of a lost name,” a new exhibition by artist James Groening (Blue Sky).

In this collection of paintings on canvas and drums, Groening both processes aspects of his Kahkewistahaw identity that are “lost in time” and the reclamation of it in reconnecting with his Indigeneity through his maternal mother and artists like Norval Morrisseau, Mark Anthony Jacobson and Loretta Gould. He is currently mentoring with Anishinaabe artist Saul Williams.

About Massy Arts

We view creative practices as integral to the political and social fabric of contemporary life. Massy Arts operates as a multi-disciplinary arts society that seeks to create a welcoming community invested in acts of care, radical futurisms, and coming together. We view artistic and writing practices as anchors to our day to day understanding of the world, and hope to build a platform where these practices are uplifted and celebrated.

The Massy Arts Gallery is located at
23 East Pender Street in Chinatown, Vancouver.
