Checking out our #exhibitions before the holidays? Be sure to head over to the #Mississauga Central #Library to see UNMASKED, an AGM Satellite Exhibition featuring works by ELLA COOPER, JAMES MICHAEL YEBOAH, JEFF BIERK & TAU LEWIS
Curated by Laura Carusi.
November 7, 2017 – January 15, 2018.
The contemporary #artists presented within this #exhibition have responded to selected works held within the AGM’s Permanent #Collection , and work to reclaim agency over their #representations . They aim to expand upon and #subvert a #dialogue that was so rigidly enforced and perpetuated by problematic historical images, #aesthetics and #politics .
For over a century people of colour, and the #cultural objects they have created, have been positioned as a tool by western artists to convey a more “simple” and “pure” #culture . These peoples and their aesthetics have been romanticized and even fetishized in an attempt to indicate an idealized independence from the problems that plagued “civilized societies” — while their own #cultures were being annihilated under European #colonialism .
The aesthetic of #art produced within colonized nations has been and continues to be appropriated and misrepresented to further these ideas — bringing great wealth and status to artists and institutions who did so, while the works of Black artists have historically been plundered and relegated to the vitrines of natural history museums. Even in #Canada , the #history of collections and collecting practices is fraught with violence and erasure.
This exhibition aims to bring to light the fact that not only do these attitudes still persist, they are maintained literally and symbolically within #galleries and #museums . The AGM commits to unmasking these harmful and persistent #ideologies , and to highlighting alternative voices in order to actively #decolonize the Permanent Art Collection.

“Kenneth Noland: Circles, Early + Late, 1959–1962, 1999–2002” at Yares Art (through December 30, 2017): In the late 1950s, Kenneth Noland (1924–2010) redefined American abstraction with his “Circles.” Color-rich and cool, the paintings were reticent, and were therefore radical departures from the expressionism of the New York School. Over four decades on, Noland circled back to the famous motif. Noland’s “Circles: Early + Late” are now paired in an entrancing exhibition at Yares Art that tells us “everything he discovered over a half century of painting,” as Karen Wilkin writes in her catalogue essay. Drawing on new paints rich in chroma and embedded with microscopic metals, Noland turned his late circles inside out, with the centrifugal spinning of his paintings from the 1950s and ’60s becoming an increasingly inward, centripetal, absorbing pull. —@jamespanero -
