Steeling the Gaze: Portraits by Aboriginal Artists

31 Oct 2008 - 22 Mar 2009

This group exhibition, drawn from the collections of the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography and the National Gallery of Canada, explores representations of Aboriginal people by Aboriginal artists. From the whimsical to the reverential, the poignant to the political, these artists refashion the view of Indigenous peoples not only by way of the camera lens, but also through their own cultural perspectives. Presented by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography.
