Curated by Jenny Western, SHARDS is a group exhibition featuring the work of four Indigenous female artists – KC Adams, Lita Fontaine, Niki Little and Jaime Black – in conversation with the 2000+ years old archaeological ceramic shards collections of the Manitoba Museum and the University of Winnipeg. Bringing contemporary craft artists together with the pots of their forebears, SHARDS incorporates both new and old ceramics as well as craft and artwork reflective of the shards that make up our past, present, and future as shared stewards of this territory.
