Canada’s Self Portrait


What is Canada’s Self Portrait?

Canada’s Self Portrait is a collaborative art project about who we are and what we stand for as Canadian settlers. We (Rebecca Jones and artist Aquil Virani) asked over 800 participants from all 13 provinces and territories to fill out a one-page worksheet that includes a quick drawing about Canadian identity. Those sketches were re-produced and integrated into a larger artwork. The project was exhibited in Montreal at Galerie Mile-End, in Halifax at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, and in Pointe-Claire at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery.
