Decolonize Me / Decolonisez-moi

Ottawa Art Gallery
16 × 24 × 1.5 cm

This is an engaging and intelligent look at the work of six indigenous Canadian artists. Six contemporary Aboriginal artists challenge, interrogate and reveal Canada’s long history of colonization in daring and innovative ways. Through a wide variety of media and strategies their work explores themes of past wrongdoings and strategies for reclaiming Aboriginal voice through an examination of the specific ways that diverse Aboriginal groups have experienced colonialism and the approaches these distinct people currently employ to restore and revitalize their communities, lives and practices. While focused on Canada’s own history, the work and its discussion participates in the global anti-colonial movement and the ongoing transnational conversation by artists and other Indigenous peoples.
