"The Canada Collection" exhibition poster.
"The Canada Collection" by Arianna Richardson, exhibition poster.
On display now in the TRUCK +15 Window Space at the EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts.
The Canada Collection by Arianna Richardson consists of collected, mass-produced artifacts representing Canadiana accompanied by created artworks informed by this same collection. Displayed in a format aesthetically reminiscent of a museum storage room, this project presents the everyday physical evidence of the heavily consumer-based propagation of Canadian identity in a manner that blurs authorial lines and opens up a dialogue about official and un-official representations of Canadian culture.
A custom souvenir has been created for the exhibition - they will be available at the closing reception. It will then be given a permanent home within The Canada Collection.
The closing reception will be Thursday July 17th at 6:00pm with drinks to follow at Wine-Oh's at 7:00pm
