Opening Tuesday September 25, 2018, from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm (last entrance 8:00 pm) as part of the Semaine des Cultures Étrangères.
At 7.00 pm, performance by Maria Hupfield with Nive Nielsen, Inuk artist, singer and actress from Greenland (and her band The Deer Children).
On September 26, from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm : exploring Maria Hupfield’s work and guided tour of the exhibition (by reservation).
After the very first exhibition in its new spaces at 130 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, featuring the work of Kent Monkman, a Toronto-based artist of Cree origin, the Canadian Cultural Centre opens its 2018-2019 artistic programme with an Indigenous artist from the Wasauksing Nation (an Anishinaabe people settled along the Georgian Bay in the Northern reaches of Toronto, ON), now established in Brooklyn. This second project highlights the importance the Canadian Cultural Centre wants to attach to the boldest and most remarkable voices from Canada’s diverse Indigenous cultures.
The exhibition Maria Hupfield. The One Who Keeps On Giving includes a selection of objects and videos derived from the performative practice of Maria Hupfield, a major artist of the North American contemporary art scene. The work deploys delicate questions about objects and the memories, as long as the gestures and relationships they evoke.
The exhibition is a production of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto, in partnership with The Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, La Galerie de l’UQAM, Montreal, The Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, Halifax and The Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris. It was sponsored by TD Bank Group and supported by Julia & Robert Foster. It received the support of The Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
