Retelling Canadian Art History…

 

The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, Concordia University, is dedicated to innovative research about the history of art in Canada: its diverse communities, creative spaces and astonishing richness. In 2016, three members of the Institute will be telling these stories in a series of public lectures, curated by Institute director Martha Langford for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The 2016 series will introduce audiences to different facets of art making in Canada. Johanne Sloan begins by asking about the places and spaces of art – about contemporary art cities, one of which is Montreal. Sherry Farrell Racette takes us back in time to Indigenous communities – to the splendour and meaning of Métis textile works, which she evokes in use. Anne Whitelaw introduces us to yet another network of Canadian art communities formed by women volunteers – those enlightened supporters of modern art and artists in Canada. These three lectures bring fresh insights to the telling of Canadian art history. 

 

 

Sherry Farrell Racette, University of Manitoba, Indigenous Scholar Fellow at the Jackman Humanities Institute and Visiting Resident Scholar at Massey College, University of Toronto

 

By the early nineteenth century, Métis women’s clothing production, beadwork and embroidery were observed as the principle means of marking visual territory. Hundreds of men and horses, adorned with ribbons and beadwork, formed a single line before charging into a buffalo herd. Finely dressed men on horseback patrolled and negotiated boundaries. Dances, or lii bals, welcomed visitors, bade them farewell, and celebrated weddings and safe returns. Women wrapped themselves in brilliant prints and lifted their skirts to reveal richly embroidered moccasins and leggings. These were social, economic and political spaces, turned into dazzling visual displays as women combined silk, wool, buckskin, fur, beads and porcupine quills to assert presence and claim territory.

 

By working in the same style as other women, drawing on a common repertoire of motifs and colour choices, Métis women manufactured a distinct visual world, and through creative action, contributed to community economies and stitched collective identities together.

Amel Ferhat, art historian, independent lecturer for the Club de l’Art

 

 

In the 1880s and 1890s, the French art scene was dominated by the Impressionists. However, other artists, like Toulouse-Lautrec, would develop a more personal form of art, causing a rupture that would clear the way for the Moderns. On the margins of any school, Toulouse-Lautrec’s fine and graphic artworks attest to his great mastery of drawing. We will learn how this artist, who lived such a tumultuous life and is considered to be one of the predecessors of Expressionism, was the source of the style with violent expression at its core. Particular attention will be paid to his poster work.

A historical paradox: Classical Greek civilization came into being at the time when Greeks were moving far away from each other, founding city-states all around the shores of the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. Did distance create the virtual center? Breakthroughs in Network theory, especially the “Small World phenomenon,” explain the emergence of Classical through a process of convergence through divergence.
