Nootka Sound Artist Exhibition at the Victoria Art Gallery

This exhibition takes the site of Nootka, in the traditional territories of the Nuu-chah-nulth peoples on the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island, as a case study to consider how artists have contributed to shaping the idea of place on the West Coast. Nootka was the site of first contact between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and as such has been a subject in art since the 18th Century.
