ANTHEM: Perspectives on Home and Native Land
25 Aug 2008 – 5 Oct 2008
KC Adams Cyborg Hybrid Niki (visual and performance artist, and videographer) 2006 digital print
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.
