Shuvinai Ashoona at the National Gallery of Canada
Shuvinai Ashoona will be featured in It Is What It Is, a special exhibition of recent acquisitions at the National Gallery of Canada. Comprising a selection of new work that has recently entered the NGC’s permanent collection, the biennial exhibition is an important showcase of leading contemporary Canadian art. Other artists featured in this year’s show include Valerie Blass, Rodney Graham, Luanne Martineau and David Altmejd. Shuvinai Ashoona will be represented by untitled (Eden), a large-scale drawing acquired by the NGC in 2009.
It Is What It Is opens November 5 at the National Gallery of Canada and continues through January 23, 2011. A one-day symposium about Canadian artistic practices and the exhibiting and disseminating of Canadian art will take place November 19 in conjunction with the exhibition.
