New Canadian Pilgrimages #4:
Pictou Island Portage

July 25-July 31, 2014

Curated and organized by Eryn Foster, the Pictou Island
Portage is a week-long artist residency taking place on
Pictou Island, Nova Scotia. As part of this residency, seven
Canadian artists, a writer and a photographer will create
independent and collaborative works that explore the idea
and practice of portage. For the duration of this residency,
participants will repetitively traverse the island on foot
while also carrying around with them a sculptural,
conceptual or performative object of art. A series of
related workshops and special events will take place
throughout the week and all activities will be open to
island residents and visitors to Pictou Island. This project
has been generously supported by the Canada Council Club for
the Arts and Arts Nova Scotia. The Pictou Island Portage is
presented in collaboration with Dalhousie Art Gallery and
NSCAD University (Division of Foundation Studies).

Pictou Island Portage resident artists include: Aimée Henny
Brown (Vancouver BC), Ursula Johnson (Eskasoni NS), Barbara
Lounder (Dartmouth NS), Douglas Raymond Smarch Jr. (Teslin
YT), Michael Waterman (St. John's, NF) and Sheilah Wilson
(River John, NS/Granville, OH). Other participants include:
expedition artist Sarah Burwash (Halifax, NS), and
expedition writer Mary Macdonald (St. John's NF).

Pictou Island Portage is the fourth in the series New
Canadian Pilgrimages, a walking-based art and research
project first launched in 2007 by Eryn Foster.
