Art Windsor-Essex respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Anishinaabe Territory – the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprised of the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. Today the Anishinaabe of the Three Fires Confederacy are represented by Bkejwanong. We want to state our respect for the ancestral and ongoing authority of Walpole Island First Nation over its Territory.
Would I: Interrogative or Proposition
July 21, 2007 - September 2, 2007
“After nearly three years of wrestling shortfalls, raising dough, building bridges, cutting overhead and figuring out heating and cooling systems, I have decided to step back into the vault and select a show. What a great time it’s been! Would I: Interrogative or Proposition draws together a large sampling of some of the Art Gallery of Windsor’s finest holdings. Looking at and gazing upon our remarkable collection of figurative works (humans and animals), I was forced to consider the real issues. Is this work interrogative or am I simply carrying on a private, animated, and very two-way conversation? This exhibition is the consequence of my considerations. Would I: Interrogative or Proposition presents beautiful questions in compelling ways. In the end, all I know is that there may not be a need for agreement.”
