BONNIE DEVINE: LA RÁBIDA, SOUL OF CONQUEST: AN ANISHINAABE ENCOUNTER
Nov 23, 2018 - All Day Feb 17, 2019 - All Day
La Rábida is a Franciscan monastery overlooking the mouth of the Rio Tinto near the small town of Palos de la Frontera on the Atlantic coast of Spain. Christopher Columbus set sail from this place in August 1492 confident he would find a new route to Asia. He landed instead on an island in the Caribbean Sea. The cultural confrontation that followed his landing is the inspiration and subject of this exhibition at Idea Exchange Queens Square

The development of La Rábida, Soul of Conquest: an Anishinaabe encounter began in 2015 and 2016, when artist Bonnie Devine visited Spain intending to examine the legacy of Columbus from an Indigenous perspective. Her research evolved into a broader investigation of the religious justification for the seizure of land and the subjugation of Indigenous populations in the Americas when she happened on the monastery at La Rábida.

This exhibition is Organized and Circulated by the Art Gallery of Peterborough.

Although Peter professes his undying love and devotion, he turns out to simply be Mary’s fantasy. But fantasy or not, that doesn’t keep Brian from going into a jealous rage.
