HERE: Locating Contemporary Canadian Artists


Saturday Jul 22, 2017 to Monday Jan 1, 2018
10:00 AM until 06:00 PM


In celebration of Canada’s 150 years as a nation, encounter Museum-wide installations of video, textiles, painting and sculpture that convey the diverse identities of more than 20 artists. Inspired by an ancient Roman carving in the Aga Khan Museum’s permanent collection that bears the inscription of different cultures and time periods, the works of contemporary artists featured in HERE suggest that artistic identity is also made of many “inscriptions” and stories. Whether Canadian-born or naturalized, permanent residents or ex-pats, these artists carry experiences from multiple geographies and generations, from neighbours old and new. Rich with questions, their works may point to a pathway for both individuals and nations. Building a future means recognizing complex histories, finding spaces to grow and allowing conversations to continue. The exhibition is curated by Swapnaa Tamhane.


Tickets are $12 for students, $15 for seniors and $20 for adults
