Please join us at the Aboriginal Gathering Place on

Meagan Musseau is a L’nu artist from the Mi’kmaq Nation. Her practice is rooted in Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk territory (Bay of Islands, Western Newfoundland) and extends to other areas of Mi’kma’ki and Wabanaki territory. Musseau nourishes an interdisciplinary practice by working with customary art forms and new media, such as basketry, beadwork, land-based performance, video and installation. She focuses on creating artwork, dancing, learning the Mi’kmaw language, and facilitating workshops as a way to actively participate in survivance.
Her work has been exhibited at AKA artist-run centre, Saskatoon; Eastern Edge Gallery, St. John’s; VOX centre de l’image contemporaine, Montreal; Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff; and Kelowna Art Gallery, among others. Her practice has been supported by numerous awards such as the Atlantic Emerging Artist (2018) and VANL-CARFAC Emerging Artist of the Year (2018), and featured in publications including Canadian Art, Border Crossings, and Visual Arts News. Musseau is working towards solo exhibitions at TRUCK Contemporary Art Gallery (Calgary 2020) and Ociciwan Contemporary Art Centre (Edmonton, 2020/21). Her solo exhibition, titled Pi’tawkewaq | our people up river, opens at Grunt Gallery (Vancouver) on March 5, 2020.
