Canadian Belongings

FEATURED EXHIBITION IN THE SCOTIABANK CONTACT PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL

MAY 5 – JULY 13, 2016

BASIL ALZERI, PANSEE ATTA, SONNY ASSU, CINDY BLAŽEVIC ́, VANESSA DION FLETCHER, CHERYL L’HIRONDELLE, KRISTIE MACDONALD, MERYL MCMASTER, ABDI OSMAN

Nine artists explore the image and document as critical sites for complicating dominant settler-colonial narratives of Canadian identity. In doing so, they demonstrate nuanced examples of what it means to “belong” on the land now known as Canada through their material (re)negotiations of the postcard, passport, scrapbook, landscape, portrait, treaty and wampum.
