WIGWAM CHI-CHEMUNG

Open Studio I

Launching on September 21, the Toronto Biennial of Art is a 72-day, free art exhibition that will take place every two years.

For the Toronto Biennial, Wigwam Chi-Chemung will host two Open Studio sessions.

Artist and poet Elder Duke Redbird’s Open Studio sessions offer the public an opportunity to visit the Wigwam Chi-Chemung boat, ask questions of, learn from, and engage with the perspectives of Indigenous Elders.


During this Open Studio, Elder Duke Redbird engages visitors in questions around “Our Environment”, focusing on Indigenous perspectives about stemming the destruction based on age old practices, together with reverence and respect for Mother Earth. Set around Wigwam Chi-Chemung—a 40-foot pontoon houseboat docked at the Ontario Place Marina—the Open Studio session is part of an evolving art installation and Indigenous interpretive learning centre created in partnership with Indigenous intellectual, poet, painter, broadcaster, filmmaker and orator Elder Duke Redbird. Over the summer and fall, visitors have an opportunity to spend time, learn from, and celebrate the Indigenous peoples who historically thrived, sustained and populated the extensive shoreline of Lake Ontario.
