Boarder X brings together interdisciplinary contemporary art from artists of Indigenous nations across Canada who surf, skate and snowboard. In this exhibition these practices are vehicles to challenge conformity and status quo, as well as demonstrate knowledge and performed relationships with the land.

Featuring: Jordan Bennett, Colonialism Boards (Michael Langan and Kent Monkman collaboration), Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Roger Crait, Steven Thomas Davies, Mark Igloliorte, Mason Mashon, Meagan Musseau, Meghann O’Brien, Les Ramsay and Amanda Strong.
