Not Quite How I Remember It


Highlighting forms of historical re-enactment and reconstruction, the Summer 2008 exhibition Not Quite How I Remember It combined the work of Canadian and international artists to investigate how we channel, mediate and memorialize history. This full-colour soft bound catalogue comprehensively documents works featured in this exhibition by Diane Borsato, Gerard Byrne, Nancy Davenport, Felix Gmelin, Sharon Hayes, Mary Kelly, Nestor Kruger, Michael Maranda, Olivia Plender, Waalid Raad, Dario Robleto, Michael Stevenson, Kelley Walker, and Lee Walton. Essays by curator Helena Reckitt and art historian Johanna Burton reflect on appropriation as an artistic strategy and propose that re-enactment can transform us from mere witnesses of history into creative participants.
