The title of the exhibition, I continue to shape, references an observation of participating artist Nicholas Galanin’s, that contemporary Indigenous cultures, like all other cultures, exist on a continuum of change based on engagements with others and in dialogue with land. The “I” of I continue to shape is both the artist’s subjectivity bearing upon the world, as much as it is the “I” of the viewer, coming to terms with how else to understand their role in upholding or dismantling the structures we have inherited, and how they are capable of shaping personal and cultural relationships. Join us Friday at 2pm for a free Drop-In Tour of I continue to shape, curated by cheyanne turions, at the University of Toronto Art Centre.
