(Re)Negotiating Every. Now. Then’s Invisible Centre: Institutional White Spatiality

92 - 2018

In this essay, the author examines why an exhibition such as Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood, the Art Gallery of Ontario’s response to Canada 150, has such a distinctly white “tone” despite the inclusion of a majority of black, Indigenous, and Southeast Asian artists. She links the exhibition’s lack of a curatorial centre to the concept of white spatiality, defined by educators Eunsong Kim and Maya Isabella Mackrandilal as “presence without provocation.” In so doing, she questions how white spatiality can be addressed to effectively force a reconsideration of the AGO’s institutional space and resources.
