Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective presents an exhibition of new works by internationally
known artists Duane Linklater and Tanya Lukin Linklater. Featuring installation work by both
artists, the exhibition explores notions of excavation in relation to the intellectual, environmental
and cultural resources most immediate to the artists. Duane Linklater investigates the structure
and materiality of the gallery wall itself, which includes gypsum, wood and steel, and considers
the political implications of those materials as resources extracted in Canada. Linklater is OmaskÍko
Cree, from Moose Cree First Nation in Northern Ontario and is currently based in North Bay,
Ontario. Tanya Lukin Linklater’s sculptural work excavates the Art Gallery of Alberta’s archival
records to investigate the complex relationships of Indigenous peoples and artists to institutions,
museums and galleries. Lukin Linklater is Alutiiq from Alaska and makes her home in Northern
Ontario. A Parallel Excavation: Duane Linklater & Tanya Lukin Linklater is curated by Ociciwan
Contemporary Art Collective and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta.
