Robert Houle: Memory Drawings
Opening reception Saturday October 1st, 1 pm
Robert Houle is a Anishinaabe (Saulteaux) artist and a recipient of The Governor General Award For Visual and Media Art in 2015. The oil stick on paper works that make up his Memory Drawings series recall his experiences as a child at residential school at the Sandy Bay First Nation / Kawikwetawankak, Manitoba. This challenging and powerful exhibition reflects the painful legacy that the residential school system in Canada has had with our Indigenous communities.
