Over the past two decades, his artworks have toured the world in solo shows, and been collected by major international museums and galleries. Environmental concerns and cultural identity propel the art practice of this conceptual artist. His extensive portfolio expands from small drawings to large scale installations and public sculptures. Irreverent, rambunctious, morphing creatures ignite the unfolding stories in his Haida Manga artform.
November 19, 2022 06:00 PM November 20, 2022 01:00 AMPlease join us for the Public Open House for Woven In: Indigenous Women’s Activism and Media from 10am-5pm. Free admission, all day.
Throughout the generations, Indigenous women across Turtle Island have been at the heart of grassroots activism and resurgence. The role of women has been of vital importance since time immemorial – safeguarding homelands, nationhood, sovereignty, and culture – despite the shift towards patriarchy that started with colonization. Woven In: Indigenous Women, Activism, and Media celebrates the intergenerational continuum of grassroots leadership and anticolonial organizing led by women through advocacy, communications, artistry, and community initiatives.
Exhibition runs from NOVEMBER 19, 2022 – MAY 7, 2023.
Curated by Gerry Ambers, Marianne Nicolson and Siku Allooloo.

In September 2022, Sandra Froher presented her collection at the International Indigenous Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week.
“Including my hand-made jewelry felt like bringing a piece of Vancouver Island to New York. I was doing this for all of us, raising up the models, honouring my ancestors, bringing forward an elder’s blessing and walking proud within my own living heritage.” Sandra Froher.
