Occupied Space, Here and There: Jayce Salloum, history of the present (1985-2009)

by Bart Gazzola

Fuse, Spring 2012, v. 35, no. 2, pp. 36-37

This article reviews history of the present (1985-2009), a retrospective of the work of Jayce Salloum. The exhibition spanned two galleries, the first filled with archival texts and images for viewers to look through, and the second filled work Salloum's video work. Salloum's work addresses Canada's colonial history in a way that deliberately goes against dominant narratives, and refuses to stay silent about how this colonization continues to play out in the present, particularly in relation to Canada's Aboriginal population.
