The Role of Art in Decolonization and Healing from History

I thought this blog brought about an interesting concept – that of art helping to educate and heal . This little article tells how a dozen aboriginal artists made the trek to Paris to open an art Paris/Ojibwa exhibit. The author tells how the artist “…has deconstructed history in order to bring integrity, honour and healing from what he terms, “the ravenous gaze of pending disappearance.”. The author explains how history has been ‘rewritten’ an an effort to bring about public awareness and recovery. A large part of decolonization is public awareness and personal knowledge – which this exhibit will offer to everyone.
