Meryl McMaster: As Immense as the Sky
University Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre
May 1 - August 4, 2019
Curator: Gaëlle Morel
Meryl McMaster's exhibition is a series of performative self-portraits set in site-specific landscapes, where the artist examines the social, cultural, and environmental contact areas of both her Indigenous and European ancestors. McMaster speaks to her place in the succession of those who have walked the land in similar yet culturally varied ways. The artist focuses on the overlapping cultures and histories— public and private, familial and non-familial—and how these different experiences inform one’s identity today.
