IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL CENTRE VITRINES
Quieting 

September 23, 2019 – March 8, 2020
With work by Lisa Myers
Presented in partnership with the University of Toronto Scarborough Department of Sociology

The Doris McCarthy Gallery has partnered with Professors Joe Hermer and Patricia Landolt from the Department of Sociology to reflect on the history of the U of T Scarborough campus land and the Miller Lash Estate. Quieting juxtaposes three elements: the work of contemporary Indigenous artist Lisa Myers, the historical evidence of stolen, unceded lands of Indigenous people in Scarborough, and the way the University memorialises the history of the campus as ‘Our Story’. Brought together, these three elements raise uncomfortable questions about the role institutions like the University play in the continued quieting of Indigenous experiences in Canada.
