Indelible Ink features prints created between 1993-2019 in a variety of media — lithography, screen printing, mono-printing, and letterpress. These prints create dialogue through critiques of mainstream North American settler culture, refracted through a diverse array of imagery drawn from personal and popular references. The checklist is multigenerational, including well established artists like Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, mid-career artists like Marie Watt and Dyani Whitehawk, and relative new comers like Sara Siestreem.
