Raymond Boisjoly: Interlocutions

September 29 - December 14, 2014

Raymond Boisjoly inaugurates our Collection Invitational exhibition series with new work generated by his research of the George and Joanne MacDonald Collection of Northwest Coast Graphic Art.

In this exhibition, the Vancouver-based artist considers First Nations artists’ use of printmaking, and the status, production and circulation of prints in relation to Indigenous literary traditions.

Boisjoly also mines sources such as YouTube, retrieving pivotal popular cultural moments, such as videos by pioneering bands, to index key cultural and political intervals, explore representations of Indigeneity, and exploit technological transmutations across media, platforms, cultures and time.

The Collection Invitational series creates artist-led, open-ended opportunities to research and activate the collection through a week-long research residency at CUAG and subsequent exhibition. It stimulates the production of new artworks and fresh ways of seeing and thinking about the Carleton University collection.
