Artist

Maria Hupfield

“Maria Hupfield is a maker, mover, connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and member of Wasauksing First Nation. Like the artist herself, Hupfield’s work is never static. Her performances, sculptures and installations reference different spans and scales of times. The projects specifically reflect her resistance to the Western tendency to essentialize Native artists and treat them as interchangeable producers of exotic cultural experiences. Hupfield intervenes in white art institutions by inserting Indigenous knowledge structures into their practices.” Text by Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Art in America.

Maria Hupfield has exhibited work at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto; Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, Montreal; and Museum of Arts and Design, New York City, among others.

Artist

Andy Leleisi’uao

“Andy Leleisi’uao’s art is about people and how they get on together as lovers, as families, as insiders and outsiders. As immigrants. News can be good and bad and it must be lived with… He shows how some lives are lived way over the line while also attempting to maintain and affirm love. Inconsistencies are included because opposites always co-exist.” Text by Ron Brownson, Senior Curator New Zealand and Pacific Art, Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki.

Andy Leleisi’uao has exhibited work at Bergman Gallery, New York; National Culture and Arts FoundationTaiwan; and Bridge Guard, Slovakia, among others.
