a center for evolving aboriginal media, visual and performing arts

Robert Houle, Palisade

Robert Houle, Palisade. 1999

Co-presented with AKA Gallery, this was the first solo exhibition in Saskatchewan for this senior First Nations artist.  Originally from Manitoba, now based in Toronto,  Houle created new work for the exhibition, dealing with the spread of small pox among native people as a form of planned genocide.  The exhibition also included a digitally produced image mounted on a billboard across from the gallery.  In addition to Saskatoon, the billboard was presented in Prince Albert and Estevan through collaboration with the Estevan National Exhibition Centre and The Little Gallery.
