Showcasing works by Hannah Claus, Rosalie Favell, Maria Hupfield, Shelley Niro, Daphne Odjig, and Tania Willard, the exhibition addressed the generational relationships that occur among women within familial contexts, schools of theory, and the contemporary Canadian Aboriginal art scene. Linking these three concepts with a line drawn from the traditional to the present, Western and Fontaine reflect upon the creation of historiographies through myth, memory, inheritance, and difference.
