Leah Decter: (official denial) trade value in progress

When: Sept. 30-Oct. 11 2014

Artist Leah Decter and curator Jaimie Issac present a provocative piece of art that relies on audience participation in (official denial) trade value in progress at Anna Leonowens Gallery. A massive blanket made from multiple Hudson’s Bay blankets will hang in the gallery from September 29 to October 11. Embroidered in the centre is prime minister Stephen Harper’s statement, “We also have no history of colonialism.” Visitors are asked to write their responses to the quote, which invited guests will sew into the blanket. Decter and Issac are giving a free public talk Oct. 6 at 5:30pm. —Jade Nauss
