“Constellations in relationship with other constellations form flight paths out of settler colonial realities into Indigeneity. They become doorways out of the enclosure of settler colonialism and into Indigenous worlds.”
–Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
Kinship systems are fluid in nature, composed of constellations of nonhuman and human relations across boundaries of space and time. Each artist in this exhibition, Elisa Harkins, Nicole Neidhardt, and Whess Harman, engage with the concept of what kinship means to them and how the care, connection and safety within these systems guide them in imagining futures where we are held in our collective worlds.
Constellations of Kin, is presented by Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre’s Poetic Justice Project made possible with generous funding from the Canada Council for The Arts.
Artists: Elisa Harkins, Nicole Neidhardt, Whess Harman
Curated by: Eli Hirtle

We at imagineNATIVE acknowledge that this land located on present-day Tkaronto (Toronto) is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon covenant, a treaty whose spirit is one based in collective stewardship and reciprocity. We take the spirit of this covenant to the core of our operations as we bring artists and audiences from many nations across the globe together through our various initiatives and activities.

Please take a moment to think of the land you currently reside upon, wherever you may be, and  acknowledge those who went before and those yet to come.
