150 ACTS: ART, ACTIVISM, IMPACT
Until February 11, 2018

150 Acts: Art, Activism, Impact provides a platform for diverse Indigenous narratives that highlight art practices as simultaneously personal, conceptual, cultural, political, and social acts, featuring foundational works from AGG’s collections complemented by new artistic practices. Compelled by the powerful historical and geographical dynamics embodied in our relationship to the lands upon which we live, work, and create, this exhibition re-narrates landscape through art practices that actively engage our collective histories and possible futures. This project has been made possible by the Government of Canada, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council. The Art Gallery of Guelph is also grateful for the partnership and support of Partners in Art. read more >
