- What’s On
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Toronto is bringing the works of Fatma Bucak from Turkey and Krista Belle Stewart from Canada into a dialogue on political identity, land and heritage, historical representation and interpretation, and the act and effects of erasure.
Both artists identify themselves as bordering on issues related with divisions of land based on ethnic identities in their own respective countries. Acts of Erasure brings into focus how their works, including Bucak’s sculptural forms and Stewart’s photographic documentations, tackle different processes of identity building as a political act and various methodologies that are in place to erase them. Through this artistic dialogue, the notions of borders, fixed cultural identities and nation-state are being called into question.
