Kapwani Kiwanga: Clearing

10 January – 11 March, 2018
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 10th at 7:00pm

Clearing features the work of internationally-acclaimed visual artist Kapwani Kiwanga. Born in Hamilton and raised in Brantford, Kiwanga attended Glenhyrst Art Gallery art camps from an early age. The City of Brantford and Glenhyrst Art Gallery is situated within the Haldimand Tract and thus the traditional territories of the Anishnaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples, who have longstanding relationships to the area. In this exhibition, Kiwanga returns to the site of her earliest arts education to consider her experience with the Gallery and the region’s unfolding relationship with colonialism, Indigenous populations, and the land. She questions how art and artists have been instrumental in the appropriation of land and the communities that reside on it.

Kapwani Kiwanga (born 1978 in Hamilton, Ontario) lives and works in Paris (FR). Kiwanga studied anthropology and comparative religion at McGill University (Montreal, CA). She has followed the program "La Seine" at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and also works at Le Fresnoy (a French national center for contemporary art). She was artist in residence at the MU Foundation in Eindhoven (NL) and at the Box in Bourges (FR). Kiwanga's works have been already exhibited in Centre Georges Pompidou (FR), the Glasgow Center of Contemporary Art (UK), the Museum of Modern art de Dublin (IE), the Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Almeria (ES), Salt Beyoglu in Istanbul (TK), the South London Gallery (UK), the Jeu de Paume in Paris (FR), the Kassel Documentary Film Festival (DE), the Kaleidoscope Arena Rome (IT) and at Paris Photo (FR). Kiwanga has been nominated as commissioned artist by The Armory Show, where a solo show is devoted to her work in 2016. Twice nominated for BAFTA, her movies have been rewarded in several international festivals.
