Bamaapii: See you later
In the Anishnaabe language, there is no word for goodbye, rather, see you later. With this new exhibition series, we say “bamaapii” to Shelley Niro’s Chiquita, Bunny, Stella which will be leaving the Thunder Bay Art Gallery and travelling as part of the upcoming international exhibition titled; Shelley Niro: 500 Year Itch.
This exhibition is hosted by The Art Gallery of Hamilton (AGH) in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI). Shelley Niro: 500 Year Itch is a retrospective of the artist’s phenomenal career, showcasing 90 works of art. Debuting at the NMAI in New York, NY from May 2023 – January 1, 2024 — Chiquita, Bunny, Stella will be touring until 2025.
