Logan MacDonald: Hidden Histories
Hidden Histories is an artistic response by Logan MacDonald to experiencing the collections of Indigenous artifacts housed at The Rooms. The artworks speak to MacDonald’s Indigenous ancestral connections, specifically in navigating issues of belonging and acknowledging cultural erasure. He critically pulls together examinations of how Indigenous artifacts are collectively held and defined within an institutional repository while imagining further personal ancestral connections to the cultural production of these material items. MacDonald creatively blurs the lines between cultural fact and family fiction, inserting the examination of his own Indigenous ancestry into the institutional framework of archiving Indigenous belongings.
