Opening of Crosscurrents: Canada in the Making
Date: June 27, 2018
Time: 6-7:30 pm
Join us for the opening reception of our newest exhibition, Crosscurrents: Canada in the Making. Crosscurrents explores ongoing cultural exchanges and interactions between Indigenous people, settler Canadians and newcomers over the last two centuries, and examines shifting identities, intersections and contestations that inform textile expressions alongside the stories of those who make Canada their home. The exhibition features objects from the Textile Museum's permanent collection, loans from public and private collections, and artwork by contemporary artists. Many of the contributors to the exhibition, including artists and community members who have shared their voices for the labels, will be present.
All are welcome!
