Close Looking: Arthur Shilling - Self Portrait

Monday, April 19, 11 am

Join curator Renée van der Avoird for a close look at Arthur Shilling’s Self-Portrait (c.1972-1977), recently acquired by the AGO. Luminous and expressive, the painting is a statement of agency that embodies the artist’s dedication to claiming his own identity as an act of sovereignty rather than one of assimilation. Shilling’s signature bold colours, reminiscent of the Woodland School, are a forceful manifestation of Anishinaabe presence.
