About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Arthur Renwick

A member of the Haisla First Nation, Arthur Renwickwas born in 1965 in Kitimat, British Columbia. Following studies at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, he completed a master's degree in photography at Concordia University (Montreal) in 1993. His photographic work explores questions around cultural identity and colonisation, frustrating the stereotypes often associated with the First Nations. Solo exhibitions of his work have been mounted at venues such as the Richmond Art Gallery, the National Museum of the Republic in Brasilia and Harbourfront Centre and Gallery 44 in Toronto. Recently, he participated in group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the Musée du quai Branly in Paris and the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institute in New York. He has also worked as an independent curator at venues including The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto and the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa and participated in establishing the White Mountain Academy of the Arts in Elliot Lake, where he subsequently taught. In 2005, he received the K.M. Hunter Artist Award. Arthur Renwick is represented by the Katzman Kamen gallery in Toronto, where he lives and works.
