Artist Naomi Smith has embellished everyday objects using traditional Indigenous beadwork techniques and imagery. Her artworks reflect that our material culture is no longer about practical functionality; instead, logos and brands have become the symbols that define societal meaning and value. In this exhibition, Indianized, Smith extends this phenomenon in unusual and visually intriguing ways, without losing sight of the time-honoured traditions of the Woodlands First Nations.
This exhibition runs concurrently with Konnón:kwe.
Naomi Smith runs workshops through Black Tulip Designs.
