Speaking for Herself puts the voices of women artists – whose work has historically been less represented in exhibitions, permanent collections, art history texts and at auction – in the foreground. The paintings, photos, sculptures and installations from the museum’s holdings on display here counter that trend. Highlights include a sketch by Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook, called Cutting Meat by the Pampers Box (2001-2002), and a graphic quilt by Canadian Joyce Wieland, director of the award-winning experimental film Rat Life and Diet in North America (1968).
