The Ephemerals is a collective of Winnipeg artists and curators who have been working together since 2010. Collective members Jaimie Isaac, Niki Little, and Jenny Western aim to investigate and interrogate perceptions of Indigenous identity through aspects of material culture, particularly those involving clothing and fashion. These three Aboriginal women established The Ephemerals collective to function as an outlet to foster and motivate artistic production within their individual practices as well as to engage collaborative projects that revolve around issues of Indigenous contemporary art. Drawing inspiration from their multidisciplinary artistic practices and diverse cultural backgrounds, the collective’s projects are fueled by collaborative pranks, formal interventions, and bizarre affairs meant to push back the supposed boundaries of Indigeneity. The Ephemerals do not exhibit a specific aesthetic but espouse something more transformative and fleeting based on the collective’s current interests and the spirit of the times.
