The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art


Amy Malbeuf presents apihkêw, an examination of matrilineal lineage and concepts of time using ancestral and familial narratives to explore notions of Métis identity and histories.

The exhibition will consist of video projections, audio, aluminum prints and installation elements.

Malbeuf, a Métis visual artist from Rich Lake, Alberta, has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. In her practice, she explores notions of identity, place, language, and ecology through utilizing the mediums of caribou hair tufting, beadwork, installation, and performance. In 2015 she was named one of two Canada Council for the Arts fellows at the Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico. Malbeuf lives in Kelowna where she is working towards a MFA from the University of British Columbia Okanagan.
