World-renowned artists Maria Hupfield, Nadia Myre, and Skawennati were each commissioned to create an installation work for the new public art project Path of Resilience, presented by DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art and Phi, and curated by Cheryl Sim, who is also DHC/ART's Curator and Managing Director. In this new video, these four women offer powerful insight about the exhibition, its works, and inspirations. While each practices in her own unique aesthetic, these works share the interrelated themes of time, memory, history, and affirmation.

"The Path of Resilience is an idea that came pretty naturally because the three artists who were selected to make works for this are women of aboriginal heritage," explains Sim in the video. "The fact that they have vital, active practices these days is something to be celebrated."

Each installation is presented in its own site-specific location along the new Promenade Fleuve-Montagne: a 3.8-kilometre walking path that goes all the way from the Saint Lawrence River up to the base of Mount Royal and is a legacy project for Montreal's 375th anniversary. The artists used different strategies to occupy the spaces of an area behind Square Victoria-OACI Metro station; the garden of Saint Patrick's Basilica; and the corner of Pine Avenue West and McTavish Street.
