I continue to shape

09/05/18 – 12/08/18
University of Toronto Art Centre

The title of the exhibition, I continue to shape, references an observation of participating artist Nicholas Galanin’s, that contemporary Indigenous cultures, like all other cultures, exist on a continuum of change based on engagements with others and in dialogue with land. The “I” of I continue to shape is both the artist’s subjectivity bearing upon the world, as much as it is the “I” of the viewer, coming to terms with how else to understand their role in upholding or dismantling the structures we have inherited, and how they are capable of shaping personal and cultural relationships.

The exhibition includes works by Maria Thereza Alves, Cathy Busby, Justine A. Chambers with Deanna Bowen + Ame Henderson + Jessica Karuhanga, Nicholas Galanin, Maria Hupfield, Lisa Myers, Mickalene Thomas, Joseph Tisiga and Charlene Vickers.
