Textile Museum of Canada
We are pleased to introduce Montreal’s Nadia Myre and Karen Elaine Spencer (Naka Collective), representing Canada in WATERCOLOUR, presented by the Textile Museum of Canada in conjunction with the TORONTO 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games and featuring 41 boat sails with work from artists from each participating Pan Am country.
For their design, titled AKI, Myre and Spencer were inspired to play with language and colour while creating a site-specific design reflecting on the complexities of the Americas. It’s a play on the words AKI – Anishnabe-mowin for land; AQUI – Spanish for where; A QUI – French for whom; ACQUIRE – English for get/win. Who will win in this land here?
Join us for WATERCOLOUR on Toronto’s waterfront on July 12 at 11:00 am and July 19 at 5:30 pm!
