Raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Jason Baerg is now a registered member of the Métis Nations of Ontario and serves his community as an Indigenous activist, curator, educator, and interdisciplinary artist.
Select international solo exhibitions include Canada House in London, UK, the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia, and the Digital Dome at the Institute of the American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. As a Cree Métis fashion designer, they launched their first commercial cruise capsule collection with New York City-based Fashion Art Gallery in 2018.
In 2020 they released a complete collection at Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto under their brand Ayimach Horizons. In 2022, Baerg opened Santa Fe’s Indian Market Fashion Show Gala and was reviewed by Dr. Jessica R. Metcalfe, one of the organizers and a recognized Indigenous fashion expert, who wrote, “Jason Baerg’s collection was a crowd favourite!” This community recognition meant as much to them as being highlighted in Vogue as being one of the “15 Indigenous Artists to Know from This Year’s Santa Fe Indian Market”.
In 2023, ELLE Magazine acknowledges Jason Baerg as one of “5 Indigenous Fashion Designers You Need to Know”.
