In Dialogue, Toronto

In Dialogue at University of Toronto Art Centre
September 6 – October 7, 2017 
In Dialogue is an exhibition structured as a conversation. It invites viewers into intimate discussions that work through new ways of understanding and being Indigenous in contemporary contexts. Moving from spaces of contemplation and reception to moments of excitement and animation, the artists blur borders drawn with invented notions of authenticity and guide us through negotiations between the specificity of personhood and its abstraction into larger groups of belonging. This gathering of work embraces the wildly individualistic tumble of connections and contradictions that constitute contemporary Indigenous identities, opening a dialogue between artists, audiences, and the interconnected mesh-works woven between all our relations. With work by Raven Davis, Raymond Boisjoly, David Garneau, Carola Grahn, Native Art Department International (Maria Hupfield and Jason Lujan), Nicole Kelly Westman, Duane Linklater, Tanya Lukin-Linklater, Amy Malbeuf, Nadia Myre, Peter Morin, Krista Belle Stewart

Co-presented by the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, and the Carleton University Art Gallery
