Rosalie Favell is a photo-based artist, drawing inspiration from her family history and Métis (Cree/English) heritage. She uses photography and portraiture to address issues of identity and representation, particularly as they relate to identifying her own experiences as a contemporary Aboriginal woman. For her solo exhibition at Latcham Art Centre, Favell will share photographs from her most recent bodies of work, including selections from Facing the Camera, a project where she has documented over 450 Aboriginal artists since 2008. This on-going series connects artists from communities across Canada and internationally, providing visibility and shifting the power dynamics of image-making traditionally used to define history and culture. Together with her peers, these portraits celebrate identity and make space for self-expression.
This exhibition continues Latcham Art Centre’s ongoing commitment to provide a public venue to showcase artwork by Indigenous artists and is generously sponsored by The University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
