Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal: Feet on the Ground presents new work by the Calgary-based Cardinal, an emerging multi-media and performance artist and community activist. Cardinal, whose ancestral roots are Cree and German, uses the women’s Pow Wow Jingle Dress Dance and its regalia as key elements of her art practice, in which she seeks a deeper understanding of herself and her Indigenous culture. Jingle dresses made by the artist are presented in the company of historical dresses from the Glenbow collection, as well as videos of Cardinal performing in her dresses. Together, the jingle dresses in the exhibition span more than 100 years of Indigenous dressmaking during which the forms and styles of women’s dance regalia have evolved and changed through decades of innovation.
