WEEK 5

NATIONAL IDENTITY

(April 16-22, 2020)

In the winter of 2019, the James Wilson Morrice exhibition (coming to us from the National Gallery of Canada) and the group exhibition Of Tobacco and Sweetgrass. Where Our Dreams Are (produced in collaboration with the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective and curated by Guy Sioui Durand) focused not so much on the creation of a national identity as on a reflection on discordance and plurality as positive and rich influences within Canadian art.

For this fifth week of Quarantined Museum, we invited you to open your creativity by reflecting on the notion of national identity. We asked you: do you think such an identity exists and, if so, what are its observable characteristics?
