Everything Remains Raw highlights the resilience of hip hop and asks why this supposed ‘fad’ has not faded away? The photograph, as archival document or commissioned photo journalism, guides this exhibition’s exploration of the mechanisms and tactics that allow hip hop in Canada to continually replenish its freshness, leading us to print culture, subversive engagements with technology, and the interdisciplinary entanglements of the undisciplined. Photographic works from 1992 to 2006 by Michael Chambers, Sheinina Raj, Demuth Flake, Patrick Nichols and Stella Fakiyesi provide the vehicle for a deep dive into a variety of visual works that challenge archival classifications of hip hop and crack open the discrepancies of Canadian historical practices.
Featured Exhibitions, UPCOMING EXHIBITION
Ian Dejardin, Executive Director of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, is delving deep into the gallery’s vaults to make a very personal selection of works of art for his first curated show since taking the reins of the gallery. Dejardin promises many classic favourites, but also some that have been rarely seen, and some that might surprise even an audience familiar with Canadian art. This exhibition will showcase the beauty, diversity, and artistry of the art of Canada.
