  • This is me, This is also me
    McMaster Museum of Art

    Curators: Sarah Brophy and Janice Hladki  6 November 2014 – 21 March 2015  ARTISTS: Carl Beam, Rebecca Belmore, Deanna Bowen,… More >

    Curators: Sarah Brophy and Janice Hladki 
    6 November 2014 – 21 March 2015 
    ARTISTS: Carl Beam, Rebecca Belmore, Deanna Bowen, Cathy Daley, General Idea, Doug Guildford, László Moholy-Nagy, Kent Monkman, Edvard Munch, Grace Ndiritu, Andy Warhol, Joyce Wieland, and Jin-me Yoon     

      
    This group exhibition focuses on self-representation and self-portraiture. Bringing together a thought-provoking mix of Canadian-based and international works, the exhibition addresses critical or interrogated self-representation in relation to multiple selves, the self-other relation, and the constitution of gender, sexuality, critical embodiment, race, and Indigeneity. Through photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, sculpture, and video art, the curators consider how representations of displacement, doubling, recognition and mis-recognition, and mutability unsettle ideas about memory and countermemory in autobiographical art.

    This project is supported at McMaster University by the Arts Research Board; Forward with Integrity, Office of the President; and Research & International Affairs. 

    OPENING RECEPTION: November 6, 6 – 8 pm
    BOOK LAUNCH: Curators’ edited collection, Embodied Politics in Visual Autobiography (2014, University of Toronto Press): November 6, 6 – 8 pm
    PANEL DISCUSSION: Representing the Self, Connecting to Others
    November 27, 1:30 – 3:00 PM
