Processes of accruing provisions for the future unite these diverse bodies of work, which take up questions of place and belonging alongside notions of colonialism and the nation-state. Maggie Groat, Tiziana La Melia and Kristie MacDonald each explore material practices as ways for reclaiming, renegotiating and reimagining the pictorial narrative of Canada, and their place within it. Individually, their works speak to rematerialized histories, while collectively, they offer poetic gestures that can contribute to larger cross-cultural dialogues.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council in the form of Exhibitions Assistance towards the production of works by artist Maggie Groat.
