Steeling the Gaze: Portraits by Aboriginal Artists31 OCTOBER 2008 – 22 MARCH 2009
CONTEMPORARY GALLERIES B102 AND B103
This group exhibition, drawn from the collections of the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography and the National Gallery of Canada, explores representations of Aboriginal people by Aboriginal artists. The works of 12 celebrated Aboriginal artists will be shown, including KC Adams, Carl Beam, Dana Claxton, Thirza Cuthand, Rosalie Favell, Kent Monkman, David Neel, Shelley Niro, Arthur Renwick, Greg Staats, Jeff Thomas and Bear Witness. From the whimsical to the reverential, the poignant to the political, these artists refashion the view of Native people not only by way of the camera lens, but also through their own cultural perspectives. Organized and presented by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography.
