Session: Against the Nation: Rethinking Canadian Art History in the World

The history of Canadian art is a transnational history. Canadian art historiography, however, is strongly rooted in national narratives. As a settler-colonial nation, the country itself cuts across dispersed territories of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. Taken one way, the prefix trans in transnational — which signals many possible relationships across, between, and beyond geopolitical national boundaries, as well as those that fundamentally challenge or change them — describes the material and epistemic violence of Canada’s formation. Taken another way, it offers a methodology for unsettling colony-to-nation narratives of Canadian art history and for thinking about the relationships between art, nation, and nationhood, and between local, regional, and global cultures, in new ways. Reframing Canadian art history in light of global networks focuses on the exchange and flow of ideas, peoples, artistic connections, and institutions beyond political borders.
