#hopeandhealingcanada with Tracey-Mae Chambers

Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA)

9 Wellington St. E., Brampton, ON, L6W 1Y1

Brampton, ON

In-person Indigenous Visual arts

Join Tracey-Mae Chambers as she creates her site specific art installation #hopeandhealingcanada on the front lawn at PAMA. Stop by throughout the day or follow along with @visitPAMA on Instagram to see the process. The installation will be on display until October 3. Tracey-Mae Chambers grew up as a stranger to her own story; adopted and re-named, grafted into a family tree. The discovery in adulthood of her Ojibwa-Metis heritage was a revelation that set her on a path of discovery. Her work is in the powerful tradition of the vessel as metaphor for individuals; we fill and re-fill ourselves throughout life to create our own story. #hopeandhealingcanada is Tracey-Mae Chamber's reaction to Covid-19 and her hope for healing by reconnecting with other people and our environments. The work illustrates the temporary nature of the pandemic, struggles and achievements and our very existence. Please note: The installation will be taking place outside and physical distancing measures will be in effect with no building access. PAMA will remain closed until early 2022, while remaining active with online programing, community partnerships and virtual and outdoor exhibitions. We are undergoing a significant construction project that impacts our entire complex to improve the airflow for visitors as well as our collections.
