From November 15, 2017 to May 27, 2018

NADIA MYRE: SCATTERED REMAINS – TOUT CE QUI RESTE. It features the Canadian premiere of Code Switching, a series Myre produced during an artist residency at the Darling Foundry, sponsored by the MMFA, in 2016-2017. The exhibition includes some twenty works – photographs and sculptures – created between 2000 and 2017. It is part of Woman. Artist. Indigenous., a season at the Museum, devoted to female Indigenous artists.

Nadia Myre is a member of the Algonquin First Nation of Kitigan Zibi Anishnabeg. In her works, she revisits official history and the political and social struggles of Indigenous peoples. She judiciously juxtaposes her personal experience with that of others, creating highly symbolic works that spark contemplation and reflection. She takes a participatory approach and tackles topics of identity, language, desire and memory. The works in the exhibition attest to the encounter between Indigenous peoples and Europeans.

Curatorial Team

The exhibition’s curator is Geneviève Goyer-Ouimettte, Curator of Contemporary Quebec and Canadian Art and holder of the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair, under the direction of Nathalie Bondil, Director General and Chief Curator, MMFA.


NADIA MYRE. SCATTERED REMAINS TOUT CE QUI RESTE is made possible through the generous support of the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Quebec and Canadian Art from 1945 to Today, and the Museum’s Women of Influence Circle, whose mission is to highlight and increase the presence of female artists at the museum. The exhibition also received generous support from the Museum’s Young Philanthropists’ Circle, which is proud to support the MMFA’s programme of contemporary art, and Air Canada.
