Event Website

Save the date! As part of AWE’s National Indigenous People’s Day Festival, join us on June 20th for a special edition of AWE at Night. Art Windsor-Essex is open late for an evening of art activities, community conversations, guided tours, and good vibes.

Performance: Dialogue no. 8 by Janzen+Broeders – 4pm to 6pm

The performances and installation of Dialogue no. 8 respond to over 500 ‘letters of love’ submitted by participants. The artists directly engage with these texts through rhythmic, interactive performances that transform and expand the gallery space throughout the duration of this exhibit. The performances follow 3 rules: 1) Perform letters of love submissions, 2) Connect with the textures of the space, and 3) Embody the sense of touch.

Mini Roundance @AWE 5pm – 6pm

Let’s join hands and celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Days in Windsor-Essex! Everyone is welcome: all ages, backgrounds and cultures. Presented in honour of the exhibition Waawiiatanong Forever.

Artist Talk: Michael Belmore 6pm – 6:30pm

Michael Belmore uses a variety of materials and processes that at times may seem disjointed, yet, the reality is that together his work and processes speak about the environment, about land, about water, and what it is to be Anishinaabe.

Small Town, Downtown: A Community Conversation 6:30pm to 7pm

Join Richard Peddie, Lloyd Alter and Chief Mary Duckworth of Caldwell First Nation for a conversation about community building, growth and sustainability.

River Bookshop will be on hand selling copies of Lloyd Alter’s publications: Living the 1.5 Degree Lifestyle (2021), and The Story of Upfront Carbon (2024), as well as Richard Peddie’s new publication, Great Small Towns of Ontario (2024).

Curator and Artist Tour: Jordan Sook & Jennifer Matotek – 7- 7:30pm

The Closest I’ve Felt to God features new works by Toronto-based artist Jordan Sook that reflect on the history of the Underground Railroad. Developed in close conversation with descendants of Freedom Seekers who crossed the Detroit River in their pursuit of freedom, Sook’s exhibition unites community voices to honour the past and inspire a brighter future.

This exhibition is curated by Jennifer Matotek and supported by Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority.
