"Rebecca Belmore: The Named and the Unnamed"
2003-05-07 until 2003-08-03
Art Gallery of Ontario
Toronto, ON, CA

Internationally acclaimed First Nations artist Rebecca Belmore stages relationships between bodily performance and sculptural installation. Belmore's work is characteristically linked to the popular representation of First Nations culture and colonial history, current events and social issues pertaining to First Nations women. A strong contemporary voice in the artistic and Aboriginal communities alike, Belmore's renowned performances and installations have offered a voice for her people.

This exhibition features five works created by the artist in 2002, in response to the horrific unfolding of evidence around the serial killing of women from Vancouver's skid row. Many of the women were of First Nations heritage, and Belmore uses her deeply felt connection as an Aboriginal woman to embody their absence and offer comfort and understanding through ancestral traditions.

Organized by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, University of British Columbia, with support from The Canada Council for the Arts.
