Calgary artist Brittney Bear Hat brings her exhibition Kokum to the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art from January 6 through February 18 2017.

Kokumis inspired by Bear Hat’s on-going exploration of relationships and the value they hold through storytelling, memory and traditions. In this body of work, she presents objects passed on to her by her own Kokum (Grandmother in Cree), examining the value of house-hold items and how their meaning evolves over time.

Bear Hat is a graduate from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Based in Calgary, her work focuses on identity and belonging. Half Blackfoot and half Cree, Bear Hat makes work about memory and how her personal history impacts her Native heritage. Using her family archives and personal items combined with text, Bear Hat retells stories and memories to reveal new value and meaning.
