Raymond Boisjoly: Interlocutions

Curated by Heather Anderson

29 September – 14 December 2014

Raymond Boisjoly inaugurates Carleton University Art Gallery’s Collection Invitational exhibition series with a new body of work generated by his research of the George and Joanne MacDonald Collection of Northwest Coast Graphic Art. The Vancouver-based artist considers Indigenous 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.
