Christi Belcourt is the first book devoted exclusively to Belcourt’s life and work: her early paintings showcasing the natural world’s beauty and interconnectedness, her monumental “flower beadwork” paintings, and her recent collaborations with Isaac Murdoch, an Anishinaabe knowledge keeper. Drawn from her first retrospective national touring exhibition, UPRISING: The Power of Mother Earth – Christi Belcourt – A Retrospective with Isaac Murdoch, these works of art inspire reflection, provoke conversation, and call for action.
Christi Belcourt is a Michif visual artist whose ancestry originates from the historic Métis community of Mânitou Sâkhigan (Lac Ste. Anne) in Alberta. She has a deep respect for Mother Earth and the traditions and knowledge of her people. She is also known for her work as a community-based artist, environmentalist, and advocate for the lands, waters, and rights of Indigenous peoples.
The book, with text in English and Anishinaabemowin, features a powerful artist’s statement by Christi Belcourt, and illuminating essays written by scholars Sherry Farrell Racette, Dylan Miner, and exhibition curator Nadia Kurd. The beautiful, richly-illustrated book traces the artist’s work over three decades, including recent paintings made with Isaac Murdoch, and documents Belcourt’s and Murdoch’s collaborative activism.
The book is designed by Mark Timmings and printed in Vancouver by Hemlock. The Anishinaabemowin translation is by Patricia Ningewance and Roger Roulette / Indigenous Languages of Manitoba Inc.
This limited-edition exhibition catalogue is sure to be an instant collector’s item.
