Banner unveiling: Friday June 30 – July 2, 2017 (12:00 to 11:00 p.m.) at It’s Your Festival 1000 Main St E, Hamilton, ON L8M 1N2,
Centre for Print and Media Arts is proud to present, with support of Ontario 150 Community Celebration Program, ONTARIO INK 150, a public banner project consisting of seven regional and local artists: Alex Jacobs-Blum, Dana Prieto, Roda Medhat, Stylo Starr, Andrew McPhail, Simon Frank, and Ingrid Mayrhofer. ONTARIO INK 150 will be exhibiting banners along Hamilton’s mountain Concession Street, between Upper Wentworth and Upper Wellington. This project involves the larger Hamilton community with the conversation around Canada and their Canadian experience.
ONTARIO INK 150 is a reflection of how we navigate the Canadian experience through multiple perspectives, which have been historically absent in Canada’s dominant narrative. By artists examining notions of Land, isolation, and survivance, Canadian nationhood is re-approached and deconstructed from monolithic Canadian themes of oneness and multiculturalism.
