Nation to Nation

Nation 2 Nation
Friday, June 26, 2015 to Saturday, September 26, 2015

Nation to Nation brings together five exceptional artists whose practices explore ways of thinking through colonization. Through a range of media, sites and strategies, these artists will bring local and non-local, Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives to a discussion about cultural perceptions of “nation,” and nation-to-nation relationships. This discussion will be propelled by the artists’ research and explorations into the Mnjikaning Fish Weirs National Historic Site and the arrival of Samuel de Champlain to the Orillia/Rama area exactly 400 years ago.

Participating Artists:
Michael Belmore(Manitoulin Island), Michael Farnan (Midland), Nadia Myre (Montréal), Travis Shilling (Rama) and Osvaldo Yero (Montréal).

Nation to Nation is a collaboration between curators Wanda Nanibush and Matt Macintosh, produced with the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council.
