In Dialogue

September 6 – October 7, 2017

Organized by John G. Hampton

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

University of Toronto Art Centre

 

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.
