Unmasking

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 settembre 2009

Jeff ThomasParis until 29/1/2010 5, rue de Constantine Canadian Cultural Centre Curators : Martha Langford and Sherry Farrell Racette  The Canadian Cultural Centre presents Unmasking : Arthur Renwick, Adrian Stimson, Jeff Thomas, an exhibition organized for “Photoquai” , the New World Visual Arts biennale of the Quai Branly museum in Paris. The photographic works of Arthur Renwick, Adrian Stimson, and Jeff Thomas are diverse, and to varying degrees, confrontational expressions of First Nations identity. Unmasking explores their individual strategies, which can be gentle, campy, or whimsical, while creating conversations between contemporary art, mass culture, and representations of the past.  All three artists use staging, or posing, of the human subject, referring directly or obliquely to photographic documents, such as Edward S. Curtis’s monumental and flawed The North American Indian, as well as stereotypical three-dimensional objects, ranging from sculptures to toys. All three also look to the built environment and the landscape for vestiges of First Nations representation and still active systems of belief. Every work in Unmasking carries signs of rupture in the historical account – signs that draw out specific histories and contemporary realities. Their mises-en-sce’ne and performances are based on sound research and deep understanding of cultural traditions, while firmly implanted in the present. Their images powerfully state: we are here now; recognize us; acknowledge us; deal with us.  The exhibition has been organized by independent curators Martha Langford and Sherry Farrell Racette for the Canadian Cultural Centre, within the context of Photoquai – Renwick, Stimson, and Thomas are featured in the 2009 edition.  Arthur Renwick was born in Kitimat, British Columbia, and grew up in the Haisla Territory.  Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Adrian Stimson is a member of the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation in southern Alberta. Jeff Thomas was born in Buffalo, New York, and currently lives in Ottawa.  Martha Langford is an associate professor and Concordia University Research Chair in Art History at Concordia University in Montreal.  Sherry Farrell Racette (Timiskaming First Nation) is an interdisciplinary scholar, an illustrator of children’s books, a painter and multi-media artist whose work combines traditional and contemporary media.
