group show: oh canada

I don’t believe that Canada or Canadian can be summed up in a series of symbols. Being Canadian doesn’t make you automatic fan of David Suzuki and the CBC. And Canada is not just snow, hockey, and maple syrup or lakes, pines, and canoes. But heck, those are all pretty great symbols and icons, no? To celebrate the birth of our nation, here is a group show that embraces all those “Canadian”isms.
