WASHINGTON, DC.- The Organization of American States AMA | Art Museum of the Americas in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of Canada to the OAS presents its largest exhibition by Canadian artists: Punctured Landscape organized by the Canada Council for the Arts.

The exhibition marks Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, presenting artworks that explore themes of democracy, human rights, sustainability, security and national historical narratives in Canada. These moments range from celebratory milestones to difficult moments in Canada’s history, with particular attention paid to Indigenous issues.

Punctured Landscape recognizes Canada as an inclusive, multicultural nation that welcomes migrants and refugees, but also grapples to reconcile its own relationship with its Indigenous peoples. This exhibition illustrates how physical and social landscapes can define a nation’s challenges and successes, while also creating a space for dialogue and exchange.

Curated by Winnipegian Kegan McFadden, Punctured Landscape is a meditation on the Canadian social landscape. These works, and the moments that they represent are to be understood as punctures, as cues for a discussion on living memory. The 17 artworks brought together in the exhibit ask the viewer to (re)consider their interpretation of history, legacy, and possible outcomes for the future.

The exhibition is part of AMA’s temporary exhibitions program showcasing contemporary artists of OAS member countries. AMA is part of the OAS’s Secretariat for Hemispheric Affairs, and its work is based on the principle that the arts are transformative for individuals and communities, as visual components reflecting the four pillars of the OAS: democracy, human rights, security and development. AMA promotes the core values of the OAS by providing a space for cultural expression, creativity, and learning AMA’s work advances the inter-American agenda, drawing on the arts to showcase a constructive vision of the future of the Americas via local and hemispheric cultural exchange. This is achieved by showcasing cutting-edge exhibits of artists whose output creatively combine aesthetics with topical social and political issues. This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Permanent Mission of Canada to the OAS, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Friends of the Art Museum of the Americas.
