Nine Years Towards the Sun

Heard Museum presents works by Canadian/Anishinaabek artist Maria Hupfield

The Heard Museum presents Maria Hupfield: Nine Years Towards the Sun opening Dec. 6. This solo exhibition of Canadian/Anishinaabek artist Maria Hupfield features more than 40 works by the conceptual performance artist.

Maria Hupfield: Nine Years Towards the Sun retools the exhibition space as a laboratory, a performance venue and as an archive. Curated by Erin Joyce, Heard Museum fine arts curator, the exhibition takes place throughout indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces and range in content from performance, sculptural installation, video and document.

Hupfield, an Anishinaabe-kwe and member of the Wasauksing First Nation, creates work that engages time as a medium, spanning across different scales and moments.

The exhibition plays with notions of a continuum of culture, entering into conversation with thematic elements from major movements and artists within the 20th century art historical canon. Hupfield subverts functionality of object by using materials which render their original intention or usage inert.

Maria Hupfield: Nine Years Towards the Sun is the first in the Heard Museum’s newly established exhibition series of monographic shows for women and women identifying artists. The series will showcase the impact women have made on and in the field of fine art and will illuminate the rich bodies of work that women artists have and continue to create to this day.
