Waterways: Asian Indigenous Relations in Contemporary Art is a series of exhibitions at Concordia University that brings together Indigenous, Asian Indigenous and Asian diaspora artists to the island of Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal) to exchange knowledge on Asian Indigenous Relations in contemporary art.

On display are works by Beatrice Glow, Stephanie Cheung, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, Kari Noe, and Henry Tsang. The grouping explores themes of sovereignty, queer relationalities, wayfinding, and climate change.

These central themes, among others, are also explored by three artists whose work are shown in other venues: Jane Chang Mi (FOFA gallery courtyard), Léuli Eshrāghi (EV Junction) and Jason Sikoak (Department of Art History vitrine).

This exhibition is curated by the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Group (EAHR) and the Indigenous Art Research Group (IARG). The exhibition series is part of “GAX 2019 Asian Indigenous Relations in Contemporary Art,” co-presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University, and Concordia University, Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal), June 10-16.
