For the final week of the acclaimed exhibition Kent Monkman: The Rise and Fall of Civilization, the Gardiner Museum will mount a lobby display of works by students in the Sheridan College Ceramics Program and in the Bead & Read Group and Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University.

Join us for the opening of an exhibition of works by students from the Sheridan College Ceramics Program, and a collaborative project created by students from the Bead & Read group and the
Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University, in response to workshops led by artists Joanna O. Bigfeather and Jim Rivera from the Institute of American Indian Arts (Sante Fe, NM) and Kent Monkman’s The Rise and Fall of Civilization. This project was made possible with the generous support of the US Consulate General in Toronto.

Inspired by Kent Monkman’s large-scale diorama highlighting the decimation of the North American bison population, the lobby installation, entitled Reflections on Culture and Identity, was created in collaboration with two artists from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Sante Fe, New Mexico—Joanna Bigfeather and Jim Rivera. Funded by the US Consulate of Toronto, Bigfeather and Rivera led workshops where students were able to explore the commonalities and differences between Indigenous visual arts practices in Canada and the United States. The results reflect a rich exploration of identity, shared history, and artistic expression.

Reflections on Culture and Identity will be on display in the lobby from January 5 to 12, 2016. Kent Monkman: The Rise and Fall of Civilization closes January 10, 2016.
