Anitra Hamilton
Retrospective on Parade
25 April – 24 June 2007

A woman, dressed in a pantsuit resembling a disco ball, stands on a plinth. Spotlit, she is performing for an audience in a darkened environment.

Toronto artist Anitra Hamilton’s Retrospective on Parade passes through the AGYU from 25 April to 24 June 2007 with a review of ten years of her work. Seemingly a march of the history of violence portrayed through Hamilton’s ornamentation of mankind’s weapons, this work is not so much anti-war as it is a probing of primal psychological drives. The retrospective marshals a number of the artist’s parade-influenced works, including a twenty by fifty-five foot mural and a newly AGYU commissioned Audio Parade based on Toronto’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. On parade, as well, is the retrospective form of the exhibition, a ceremony we view through the veneer of cultural civility.
