The Yukon Energy Community Gallery is now showcasing works by Joseph Tisiga until the end of June. The community, youth and main galleries are now open to the public by appointment only. For more information and to book an appointment click here.

Born in 1984, Joseph Tisiga is a member of the Kaska Dena Nation, who lives and works in Whitehorse and Montreal.

This year he is a recipient of the Sobey Art Award, Canada’s most prestigious contemporary art prize. The Yukon Arts Centre and Yukon Permanent Art Collection are extremely excited to see a Yukon artist recognized nationally and very happy to share these works from our collections with you.

Although firmly rooted in painting and drawing, his work incorporates performance, photography, sculpture and installation in an exploration of colonial history, hybrid identities, and an evolving personal mythology. His practice features imagery inspired by his own social and philosophical influences, reflecting new approaches to storytelling.
