The Witness Blanket
Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Role: Exhibit graphic design and production
The Witness Blanket, inspired by a woven blanket, is large‐scale art installation created by Carey Newman. It is made from pieces of history – hundreds of items reclaimed from residential schools, churches, government buildings, and other cultural structures all across Canada.
This temporary exhibit adapted and expanded upon an existing travelling exhibit identity, exploring the natural materials, geometric patterns and layering used in the blanket's construction.
