Arthur Shilling: The Final Works
Curated by Arthur Kingfisher

Arthur Shilling: The Final Works profiles the late Ojibwe artist Arthur Shilling and the works he produced during the last decade of his life, 1976-1986. Organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Peterborough, this engaging exhibition showcases an incredibly creative period during which time Shilling produced powerful portraits that reflect contemporary identity politics within Indigenous culture. Shilling was both a visionary and an activist who worked to transcend the lines between portraiture and politics. In works such as The Beauty of Our People (1985-1986), a 30-foot long mural, he conveys their power and energy in the contemporary world. But beyond serving as a monumental portrait, the mural offers viewers the opportunity to remember and reflect upon the many struggles that continue to impact Indigenous Peoples today. Arthur Shilling was born in 1941 on the Chippewas of Rama First Nation Reserve, Ontario. In his portraits of family and friends from his community, he contributed greatly to the emerging discourse of contemporary art in Canada from the 1960s-1980s. Through his expressionistic style, he portrayed Indigenous peoples as strong, confident and proud.

Curated by Pan Wendt

Organized and circulated by the Confederation Centre Art Gallery, Charlottetown, P.E.I., Leah Modigliani: Washington D.C., 1939; Basel, 1957; Paris, 1958; Berkeley, 1969; Chicago, 1969; London, 1969 is an exhibition of works by Leah Modigliani reflecting on themes of history, protest and power narrated through a feminist lens. Embedded within a discourse of representation, Modigliani challenges the ways in which political resistance has been disseminated and archived in popular culture. By reconstituting moments of activism inside the gallery, the artist is both commemorating moments in history as well as exemplifying methods for protest. In each instance, Modigliani has created a restorative gesture to critique the power of the photographic image, the document and the memory of history whose political efficacy remains an open question.

Hind vs. Hind
Curated by Simon Frank

The historical landscape works of William G.R. Hind and the contemporary landscapes `of his great, great, great, nephew Dave Hind are separated by over one hundred years and span a number of generations as well as an extensive period of time in Canadian art history. In Hind vs. Hind, organized by the Art Gallery of Windsor, the Brantford-based artist Dave Hind juxtaposes William G.R. Hind’s Pictou Sketchbook, a series of drawings and watercolours from the AGW’s collection with “aluminum paintings” that are created by cutting, grinding, and riveting colourful scraps of reclaimed aluminum. The new works produced for the exhibition are Hind’s responses to his late relative’s works, many of which he has only encountered as small reproductions in exhibition catalogues. From a historical perspective, this exhibition reflects upon the increasing influence that William G.R. Hind’s paintings have had on Dave Hind’s recent work, as well as the interesting and unexpected connections between the approaches and techniques that both artists employ in their work. In short, Hind vs. Hind utilizes this unique relationship between familial artists, to present viewers with an intriguing representation of the development and evolution of the landscape tradition in Canada, while offering a unique perspective on the history of the country itself.
