Adrian Stimson: Naked Napi

Sept 8 to Dec 8, 2018

Naked Napi presents 2018 Governor General Award recipient Adrian Stimson’s new site-specific installation and reimagines the traditional Siksika (Blackfoot) tales of Napi in the present. Napi, often referred to as the “Old Man” who came from the sun, is known as quasi-creator in these stories alongside the “Old Woman.” Naked Napi is a display of reclamation that challenges the colonial erasure of Indigenous bodies, power and sexual histories—where the intersections of indigeneity, sexuality, and Two-Spirit identities are drawn to the forefront.
