Carleton Curatorial Laboratory (CCL): Family Matters

January 27 - May 16, 2021

This exhibition explores the many ways in which artists approach and represent ideas of kinship, community and belonging.

Family Matters brings together a compelling range of prints, drawings, photographs and paintings, dating from the mid-1800s to today, selected from CUAG’s collection.

These works variously depict tender moments, document public and private spaces, index the everyday and explore familial roles and relationships.

Family Matters was curated by the graduate art history students enrolled in CURA 5001, a curatorial studies seminar taught by Professor Stéphane Roy.
