In these contemporary times, it becomes extremely difficult to maintain a culture and its traditions. When you are a part of a culture that has been near extinction, it becomes hard to identify who you are and what the next step is in reclaiming your identity. Although not always in a conscious way, these factors affect our everyday lives. In one way or another we address these issues from time to time in our work as artists. The Aboriginal Students Association group members at OCAD, have gathered work to show this unique subconsciousness.
If we could do anything to reach a goal of reclamation and understanding, what better place to start than inviting people to an exhibition and to 'gather' some thoughts. This exhibition showcases works of contemporary aboriginal students in various media from painting to graphic design, from photography to video installation.
