Rebecca Belmore: MARCH 5, 1819

Video Screening:  Rebecca Belmore: MARCH 5, 1819
From the collection of McMaster Museum of Art

The acclaimed Anishinaabe artist Rebecca Belmore has addressed history, place, and identity through her consistently powerful and provocative multi-disciplinary works of art. March 5, 1819 is a recently acquired video work that considers the frantic final moments before Demasduit, a young Beothuk woman (later renamed Mary March) is captured by colonists at Red Indian Lake in Newfoundland.

Rebecca Belmore (Anishinaabe/Canadian) is internationally recognized for her performance and installation art. Belmore was Canada’s official representative at the 2005 Venice Biennale, received the Governor General’s Award for Visual and Media Art in 2013, and was awarded the 2016 Gershon Iskowitz Prize.

On view at McMaster Museum of Art, McMaster University from May 10 – August 18, 2018
