ANTHEM: Perspectives on Home and Native Land

August 25, 2008 - October 5, 2008


Curator:
Year 2008 Theme Indigenous, Photography, Sculpture & Installation, Textiles

In this exhibition the following artists present their responses to forms of Canadian identity, nationhood and nationalism: KC Adams, FASTWÜRMS, Cynthia Girard, Dana Inkster, Alisdair MacRae, Shirley Moorhouse and Eric Robertson. These seven artists from diverse backgrounds (including African-Nova Scotian, aboriginal and Inuit) consult their personal and communal selves to formulate the variations of “sovereignty” that they express as their “anthem.” The results counter stereotypes by presenting ideas that Canadian multiculturalism policies fail to encompass. The artistic media include digital photographs, video, painting, textiles and installations.

Organized by Carleton University Art Gallery
