ARTiculate Our Rights

Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Temporary exhibition

 

Role: Exhibit graphic design and production

ARTiculate Our Rights began as a project to mark the 150th anniversary of Manitoba becoming a province of Canada. Young people aged 13 to 18 were asked to submit artwork for consideration. More than 100 diverse works were chosen for two phases of display.

The first phase of this exhibition opened at The Forks, a gathering place where the Red and Assiniboine rivers meet. Art by 26 youths was presented on 13 large installations throughout the grounds. The second phase included a 1800 sq.ft. indoor mixed media presentation featuring all student submissions displayed across a 70' wide x 10' tall projection screen. The exhibition also included interviews from teachers, artists, curators and educators reflecting on human rights, art, and the work displayed.

To ensure accessibility for visitors of all abilities, people can use their mobile devices to retrieve text-to-speech and visual descriptions of the artworks from QR codes at each installation.
