Land Back

Postponement of the Opening and Vernissage

A situation beyond our control is forcing us to postpone the opening and vernissage of Land Back, the sixth edition of the Contemporary Native Art Biennial, to a later date.

Therefore, there will be no celebration this Saturday, October 1, at EXPRESSION.
The gallery will remain closed to the public for an undetermined time.

Stay up to date!

The new date for the opening and vernissage of the exhibition will be sent to you by email and published on our Facebook page.

Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have protected biodiversity in the face of continued human population growth. Since contact with settlers began, Indigenous communities have been stripped of their ancestral lands; the Land Back movement aims to restore governance and stewardship of the land for a sustainable future.

Land Back is a call to action, a return of equity to a stolen territory, but it also offers an important question: how can we best protect biodiversity, land, and water? The first step would be to return the land to its traditional and legitimate protectors. Returning to Indigenous knowledge goes beyond symbolic gestures of recognition or inclusion to significantly change practices and structures.
