Sep 24, 2017 -- Jan 7, 2018:
East Wind is a mural by Maria Hupfield that brings a new interpretation to Tom Thomson's West Wind and in which, a silhouette of Hupfield has been inserted into the composition. Thomson's West Wind, on loan from the AGO, will be presented opposite of Hupfield's East Wind. This work explores issues around the idea of nationhood and constructed historical narratives that ignore or obscure different voices – in this case, the narratives of the First Nations peoples and women. Historical and contemporary work from The TOM's collection by Krieghoff, Kane, Verner, the Group of Seven, Carl Beam, Diana Thorneycroft, Lyla Rye and Thomson will be integrated on adjacent walls, adding multilevel discursive dialogues to the exhibition, curated by Virginia Eichhorn.
Owen Sound 160 features selections from The TOM's Collection exploring Owen Sound's history since 1857. Curated by David Huff and John Hawksbridge ... more
