Kloqowej (Star) keeps it all in the family 

A 30 year retrospective of Caroline Gould's work brings in a special curator.

Ursula Johnson calls curating this exhibit an "intense" experience, and an incredibly special one. Kloqowej (Star) showcases a collection of 30 intricately woven baskets, spanning the 30-year career of Caroline Gould, who also happens to be Johnson's great-grandmother. "Even though my art is very different...I like to think it's the same type of subject matter. It goes back to how I identify as a Mi'kmaw individual...I'm trying to tell a story about my people or where I've come from and I think that she does the same thing." Johnson pitched the idea of this exhibit as a way to honour her great-grandmother's work, which has inspired her own art, and to highlight Gould's evolution as an artist and her role as a spokesperson and advocate for traditional art and language.

To Feb 27, Mary E. Black Gallery, 1061 Marginal Road, Suite 140
