The late Joane Cardinal-Schubert was an artist, and an activist who fought for the right of First Nations artists to exhibit their work in museums and galleries alongside the work of non-indigenous artists.
The exhibition, "The Writing on the Wall: Works of Dr. Joane Cardinal-Schubert, RCA" is an examination of her work and will be on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG), May 5th to August 12th, 2018.
Cardinal-Schubert’s work is a deep exploration of her personal investigations into her Kainai heritage, and Canada’s colonial history. It represents issues that concerned her: identity, history, the environment.
