INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE brings together 29 emerging-to-established Indigenous artists who are pushing boundaries with their work. The collection considers political insurgency and cultural resurgence to radically shift our understanding of Canada, now and in the future. Working in a variety of media, the artists focus on Indigenous intergenerational cultural knowledge within land based practices, gender, traditional aesthetics, language revitalization, interconnected kinships, identity, and material culture. INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE is the WAG's largest-ever exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art and includes 12 new commissions from artists across Canadian territories and nations. Feel the pulse of today through tufting, tattooing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, sound, beading, media, and performance.

The study of History deals with the past - it interprets human affairs and institutions as they change in time. By actively exploring the past we strive to understand the complexities of the present and to anticipate the challenges of the future. The Department of History offers courses designed to lead students, in stages, to an understanding of the historian's craft and of the historical process. As a student of History, you will improve your ability to evaluate evidence and learn how to present your interpretations in clear and logical written and oral arguments.      Ever wonder what people who have a History degree do?
