The International Center for Art and Landscape of Vassivière Island presents a monographic exhibition by the artist Nadia Myre following a creative residency held between May and June 2024.

Opening on Saturday July 6

Nadia Myre is a Quebec artist, Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, who lives and works in Montreal. Her multidisciplinary practice is part of a rediscovery of the objects of Indigenous communities, mainly those of the First Nations, in a transcultural approach. She uses public participation as a strategy for initiating a dialogue on identity, resilience and the politics of belonging.

Following her participation in the group exhibition Lignes de fuites in 2022, the CIAP Vassivière is inviting her this year to dive into the landscape, history and culture of the island of Vassivière and the surrounding area, in preparation for her next exhibition, which will run from June 22 to December 29, 2024.
