Abstract (English)

"This November 16, Dunlop Art Gallery will be presenting a new performance by Regina artist David Garneau. The event coincides with the anniversary of the day that Louis Riel was hanged in 1885. Dressed as Riel, the artist will enact a performative conversation with the bronze statue of John A. Macdonald in Victoria Park. This performance will be part of a dialogue about the import and legacy of the charismatic Métis leader and Canada’s first Prime Minister, who charged Riel with high treason, effectively sentencing him to his death. The performance will also touch on themes of Métis aesthetics, art and activism, and the difficulty of reconciliation. Also join David Garneau and renowned Métis artist, writer and educator Dylan Miner for a post-performance conversation, held at RPL Central, Public Meeting Room 1, immediately afterward." -- Publisher's website.
