Aga Khan Museum celebrates Canada 150 by showcasing Canadian identity

Apr 5 2017, 4:30 pm

In celebration of Canada’s 150 years as a nation, Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum is featuring a Canadian identity exhibition this summer.

Starting in July, Museum-wide installations of video, textiles, painting and sculpture that convey the diverse identities of more than 20 artists will take over the space in an exhibit called “HERE: Locating Contemporary Canadian Artists.”

“Whether Canadian-born or naturalized, permanent residents or ex-pats, these artists carry experiences from multiple geographies and generations, from neighbours old and new,” according to the Museum. “Rich with questions, their works may point to a pathway for both individuals and nations. Building a future means recognizing complex histories, finding spaces to grow and allowing conversations to continue.”

The exhibition is curated by Swapnaa Tamhane.
