"Here: Locating Contemporary Canadian Artists"
July 22 – January 7, 2018
The contemporary artists featured in HERE suggest that Canadian identity, too, is made of many “inscriptions” and embedded stories. Whether Canadian-born or naturalized, permanent residents or ex-pats, these artists carry experiences from multiple geographies and generations, from neighbours old and new. Rich with questions, their works may point to a pathway for both individuals and nations. Building a future means recognizing our complex histories, finding spaces to grow, and allowing conversations to continue.
