About this event

This talk introduces the breadth of LeGrande’s practice, and offers visitors an insight to her upcoming exhibition, Mullyanne Nîmito, which opens Friday, Jan. 19 at AKA Artist-run Centre!

Cheyenne Rain LeGrande ᑭᒥᐊᐧᐣ is a Nehiyaw Isko artist from Bigstone Cree Nation. She currently resides in Amiskwaciy Waskahikan, also known as Edmonton, Alta. Her work often explores shared knowledge and traditional practices. Through the use of her body and language, she speaks to the past, present and future. She recently received the Salt Spring National Art Prize (People’s Choice) and the Edmonton Artists Trust Fund Award. Cheyenne’s work is rooted in the strength to feel, express and heal. Bringing her ancestors with her, she moves through installation, photography, fashion, video, sound, and performance art.

This talk is co-presented alongside AKA Artist-run Centre, and the University of Saskatchewan’s Art and Art History Visiting Speakers Committee with the support of the Mina Forsyth Lecture Funds.
