Jeff Thomas Opening Reception

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Free

Jeff Thomas is a nationally recognized photo-based artist, writer, and curator, artwork featured in major art collections in Canada and the United States. In his work, he examines historical and contemporary views of Indigeneity and addresses the impact of issues such as urbanization, land ownership and historical ways of representation. The exhibition The Indigenous Map Maker’s Room, shows work from his larger series, Indians on Tour, which features toy figurines posed in front of national monuments and landscapes. In his photographs, Thomas reframes the stereotypical representation of the figures, presenting them as tourists in a contemporary environment, challenging preconceptions of Indigenous peoples and Indigenous history.
