Collection: Carrie Allison

She grew up on the unceded and unsurrendered lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Allison’s maternal roots are based in maskotewisipiy (High Prairie, Alberta), Treaty 8. Situated in K’jipuktuk since 2010, Allison’s practice responds to her maternal Nêhiýaw/Cree and Métis ancestry.

She has completed residencies at The Natural History Museum supported by Eyelevel ARC, NSCAD’s Studio Residency in Lunenburg and Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery. In the summer of 2019 Allison had three solo exhibitions at The Owens Art Gallery in Sackville, NB, Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery in Halifax, NS, and The New Gallery in Calgary, AB. In 2019, Allison also participated in Plug-In’s Summer Institute, Indigenous Architectures, Glam Collective’s Memory Keeper II, Eastern Edge’s Land-Based Residency and the Banff Centre’s Craft as Contemporary Art. Currently Allison has work in the Textile Museum of Canada’s exhibition Wild! and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, as well as Urban Shaman in February 2020. Allison holds a Master in Fine Art, a Bachelor in Fine Art and a Bachelor in Art History from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD).
