Exhibition: Cathy Busby: WE CALL

Time & Date: May 20, 2017 – April 28, 2018

Location: Teck Gallery, Canada

WE CALL is composed of selections from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s (TRC) 94 “Calls to Action”. This document is one of the series produced by Cathy Busby that draw attention to the ways that governments obfuscate their accountability towards Indigenous rights and title in public address, policy and service. It accompanies the 500-page report that synthesizes the TRC’s inquiry into the inter-generational legacy of Canada’s Indian Residential School System.

Busby’s selections highlight the ways that governmental, educational and cultural institutions are called on by the TRC to cultivate Indigenous leadership, stewardship and participation within structural systems.

The work’s title, WE CALL, abbreviates the address of each call to action to emphasize the mutual responsibility of the caller(s) to participate in enacting these structural shifts.
