Sylvia D. Hamilton: Excavation: Memory Work

UNB Art Centre
9 Bailey Drive
Fredericton, NB

This exhibition is an adaptive multi-media installation in which the artist presents ideas of place, memory and history through selections of text and objects relative to the space in which it is displayed.

At the UNB Art Centre, Sylvia D. Hamilton mines the collection of Kings Landing and the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick for artifacts and photographs to tell the story of Black settlement in the region.

Based on decades of research and reflection, this powerful and thought-provoking display will challenge our ideas and assumptions about what we know about our collective past.
