Moving the Museum – A new catalogue of Indigenous + Canadian Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Moving the Museum documents the reopening of the J.S. McLean Centre for Indigenous & Canadian Art with a renewed focus on the AGO’s Indigenous art collection. The volume reflects the nation-to-nation treaty relationship that is the foundation of Canada, asking questions, discovering truths, and leading conversations that address the weight of history and colonialism.
Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 reproductions, Moving the Museum: Indigenous + Canadian Art at the AGO features the work of First Nations artists. Drawing from stories about our origins and identities, the featured artists and essayists invite readers to engage with issues of land, water, transformation, and sovereignty and to contemplate the historic and future representation of Indigenous and Canadian art in museums.
Ace’s work trinity suite: Bandolier for Niibwa Ndanwendaagan (My Relatives); Bandolier for Manidoo-minising (Manitoulin Island); Bandolier for Charlie (In Memoriam), 2011-2015 is included in the publication. The work was purchased with support of the Max Clarkson Family Foundation and the Dennis Reid Fund 2018. Barry Ace 2018/3586.
