Othered Women is an exhibition that took place simultaneously in three separate artist-run centres in the inner city of Saskatoon. The six women artists included in this multi–centred exhibit—Sherry Farrell Racette, Mimi Gellman, Tania Willard, Rosalie Favell, Joi Arcand, and Nadia Myre—come from different communities and cultures across Canada. In their exhibited works they examine the history of First Nations and Métis women in Canada from their own differing contexts, locations, and perspectives. The exhibit was designed to generate dialogue about the concept of othered women within the Canadian national imaginary.
