Bonnie Devine | Circles and Lines: Michi Saagiig
Guest-curated by Raven Davis. Presented by the Art Gallery of Mississauga
September 6 – December 21, 2018
Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Thursday, September 6, 6 – 9 PM
This project uses various media and mapping strategies to explore the complex colonial histories of the north shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, which include the cities of Mississauga and Toronto and the traditional territories of the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) and the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations of the Grand River).
A member of Serpent River First Nation, Genaabaajing, an Anishinaabe Ojibwa territory on the north shore of Lake Huron, Bonnie Devine’s work emerges from the storytelling and image-making traditions she witnessed as a child. Her art explores issues of land and environment, treaty and history. She is an artist, curator, writer, and educator. Though formally educated at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD U) and York University, her most enduring learning came from her grandparents, who were trappers on the Canadian Shield. Devine’s installation, video, and curatorial projects have been shown in solo and group exhibitions and film festivals across Canada and in the USA, South America, Russia, Europe, and China, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Berlin Film Festival, the National Museum of the American Indian, and Today Art Museum in Beijing.
