This touring exhibition, curated by Leena Minifie, brings together works by six contemporary Indigenous artists across Turtle Island who combine superhero comic book images with figures and images drawn from traditional and contemporary Indigenous stories. The show takes its name from exhibiting artist Sonny Assu’s works depicting Raven the Trickster transforming into Spiderman in order to maintain his visibility. In addition to Assu, artists include Joi T. Arcand, Julianne Beaudin-Herney, Shaun Beyale, Elle-Maija Tailfeathers, and Jeffrey Veregge.
Organized and circulated by the Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, Saskatchewan.
Gallery hours: weekdays, 12:00 - 4:00 pm & Saturdays, 1:00 - 4:00 pm. Closed statutory holidays.
