From October 22nd to November 19th, 2022, MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels) presents Ji zoongde’eyaang, a collaborative mother-daughter exhibition between Anishinaabe Oji-Cree artists Lara Kramer and Ida Baptiste. The vernissage will take place on Saturday, October 22nd at 3:00 pm.

In this collaborative mother-daughter exhibition, Lara Kramer and Ida Baptiste bring forward their relational practices through generations to express and represent embodied experiences like memory, loss, and reclamation. The title of the exhibition, Ji zoongde’eyaang, means “to have a strong heart” in Anishnaabemowin.

The exhibit features older, never shown works of Ida Baptiste from the early 1990s that draw on her memories of attending Brandon Indian Residential School. It also features a series of contemporary pieces by both artists in various mediums, including photography, video, text and sound.

“This is our practice together. Of labour. Of love. Of love labour. It is a story of resistance, of survivance and of our ongoing presence here on Turtle Island. It is the place where we, with our soft hard loving hands, materialize imagination and dreams to pave a healthier path forward. A practice intended for sharing with future generations.” – Lara Kramer
