Saskatchewan in Bilbao
Following the visit to London, Creative Saskatchewan took the art exhibition 'Saskatchewan' to Bilbao, Spain.
Bilbao, like London, was an opportunity to introduce locals to the variety and breadth of creative talent our province has, while also taking advantage of attending a digital and technology conference, BIME.
The art exhibition in Bilbao was the same as in London, this time located in the Mercado del Ensanche, Bilbao.
A pop-up art exhibition curated by world-renowned Saskatchewan artist, Adrian Stimson. The exhibition, aptly titled 'Saskatchewan' is a sampling of Saskatchewan artists and intended as a testament to the history of art in the province, and the continued investment in its creation and diversity.
"Like a river, this exhibition meanders its way through the land, through time and space, creating tributaries that speak to indigenous being; settler history; the metissage of peoples; the animal nations; the land; the living skies and the many stories that deposit themselves in the banks of our minds, hearts and imagination. ~ Adrian Stimson, curator
BIME is an international conference focusing on music and technology; in addition to attending presentations, Creative Saskatchewan CEO participated in a panel discussion on funding programs for film.
