Sho Sho Esquiro: Doctrine of DiscoveryBill Reid Gallery, Exhibition Catalogue
Sho Sho Esquiro: Doctrine of Discovery features meticulously crafted couture gowns, textiles, and paintings by award-winning artist and activist Sho Sho Belelige Esquiro (Kaska Dena/Cree/Scottish). Esquiro's creative vision celebrates the beauty, strength and resilience of First Nations communities in the face of historical and ongoing trauma.
Created to accompany Esquiro’s first solo exhibition in Canada, this 64-page publication features gorgeous photography of her original one-of-a-kind fashions, textiles and paintings, combined with a critical curatorial essay by Guest Curator Miranda Belarde-Lewis and contributions from several other guest writers. Esquiro is known for her ability to inspire conversations around genocidal colonial practices, to confront the theft and murder of Indigenous women and children, and to honour activists on the front lines.
