Outing the Underground Artist: Getting to know Alan Syliboy

Outing the Underground Artist: Getting to know Alan Syliboy | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

For more than 30 years, Mi’kmaq artist Alan Syliboy has been shaping the legends of his people into art. His paintings can be found in public and private collections from Switzerland to Australia, and across North America; he’s Artist in Residence at Dalhousie University, in Halifax. As a member of the group LoneCloud—along with his son, Evan—Alan is an ECMA-nominated recording artist. Saltscapes spoke to him from his studio in Truro, NS, about his school years, his grandmother and rock engravings, also called petroglyphs.

Local Indigenous art isn’t all craft and legend paintings. A new exhibit at the Khyber Institute of Contemporary Art aims to broaden the often-narrow perception of work produced by Mi’kmaq and Maliseet artists.

“This is a good opportunity to see where Aboriginal art is at the moment, and you’ll be able to see something you’ve probably never seen before,” says Alan Syliboy, curator of Snapshot: East Coast Contemporary Aboriginal Art and a well-established Mi’kmaq artist in his own right.

 

Snapshot: East Coast Contemporary Aboriginal Art is on at the Khyber Institute of Contemporary Art (1588 Barrington Street, Halifax) until Aug. 17.

ALAN SYLIBOY jumped at the opportunity to exhibit work by contemporary Mi’kmaq and Maliseet artists in downtown Halifax.

 

“I wanted people to see a wider scope of aboriginal art than they are used to seeing,” says the internationally exhibiting Mi’kmaq artist and curator, who lives in Millbrook First Nation.

 

Snapshot: East Coast Contemporary Aboriginal Art Exhibition, at the Khyber Institute of Contemporary Arts to Aug. 17, showcases the recent work of six emerging and mid-career artists: Frannie Francis, Ursula Johnson, Dozay Christmas, Charles Doucette, Gerald Gloade and Jerry Evans.
