About the exhibition:
On view until August 5, 2018, this survey exhibition celebrates the career of artist Shelley Niro, winner of the 2017 Scotiabank Photography Award. With more than seventy objects, this retrospective includes both seminal projects and never-before-shown photographs, along with some of the artist’s most recent works. A member of the Six Nations Reserve, Bay of Quinte Mohawk, Turtle Clan, Niro combines beadwork designs, archival images, family pictures, videos, and installation to question traditional representations of Indigenous peoples, with a particular focus on womanhood. Challenging stereotypes, Niro’s portraits explore notions of culture and identity with sensitivity and humour.
The exhibition is presented by Scotiabank, organized by the Ryerson Image Centre, and a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
