Straddling a chopper bicycle decked with a buffalo skull and a parfleche, a supernatural traveller fixes his gaze on the infinite distance, prepared to ride. His gleaming hair flowing from a cowboy hat adorned in beadwork, the rider is covered in cultural belongings, roping together traditional NDN aesthetics with hip-hop sensibilities. Referencing the 1969 film Easy Rider while evoking the boundless landscape of the Great Plains, Claxton’s cinematic vision invites viewers to journey through the past, present, and future.



Dana Claxton is an acclaimed international exhibiting artist who works in film, photography, video, and performance art. Her practice investigates Indigenous beauty, the body, the socio-political and the spiritual. In 2020, she was awarded the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts and the Scotiabank Photography Award. Her work is held in private and public collections at the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Claxton is head and professor in the department of art history, visual art and theory at the University of British Columbia, and is a member of the Wood Mountain Lakota First Nations of Saskatchewan.

Casey House Foundation
Casey House is unlike any other hospital. We are a specialty hospital in Toronto providing ground-breaking care to people living with and at risk of HIV. Together with our clients, staff, peers and volunteers, we strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels safe. We offer a growing mix of inpatient, outpatient and community-based services that meet clients where they are in their individual journeys of health and wellness. Building on a legacy of advocacy and social justice, we actively dismantle barriers to care and safe living. We provide a community and sense of belonging that connects people to care. The humanity of each client is at the heart of everything we do.
