Maria Hupfield: The One Who Keeps on Giving
17 Mar 2018 – 13 May 2018
Maria Hupfield, Jingle Spiral 2015
Co-produced with The Power Plant
The title of the exhibition is also the title of a new video installation named after the translation of Hupfield’s mother’s Anishinaabe name. The video documents a performance by the artist and her siblings in Parry Sound, an event re-enacted with a smaller cast at each tour venue. The exhibition also includes felt objects which are animated in performances shown in video. The objects and performances demonstrate the importance of kinship, lineage and other close relationships in Indigenous culture, revitalized within a contemporary idiom.
The exhibition catalogue has essays by Crystal Migwans and Richard William Hill plus an interview with the artist. Exhibition produced by The Power Plant, Toronto, in partnership with Southern Alberta Art Gallery; Galerie de l’UQAM; MSVU Art Gallery; & Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris. Tour support from the Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council is gratefully acknowledged.
