From Water to Water – A Way Through The Trees (an installation)
Anishinaabe/Ojibwa artist Bonnie Devine will create a site-specific mural installation and mentorship project this fall at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Devine and her assistant, Mariah Meawasige, will conduct research on the Carrying Place Trail, which historically provided an integral connection for Indigenous people between Ontario’s Lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe-Georgian Bay Region and which runs alongside the Humber River, and the surrounding lands on which the Gallery is located. The results of their research will inform the design and content of the mural. Inspired by the Gallery’s natural surroundings, this multi-media work will combine painting, archival collage, and printmaking techniques.
Installation on view until May 29, 2022
