Presented in association with the NAC’s "Ontario Scene", "North of the 45th" looks at the diversity of artistic practices and voices from Northern Ontario. From drawing to ceramics to video to performance, these works dismantle stereotypical notions of regional identity by offering complex and thoughtful expressions of the relationships that connect land, memory, and history.

Six artists present their work: AMANDA BURK’s drawings (North Bay) contemplate ideas about symbiotic relationships and cohabitation. Using archival research, performance, video, and photography, RIAZ MEHMOOD (Thunder Bay) tackles the complexities of identity and history. SARAH LINK's (Thunder Bay) installations titled Ripple and Legacy address issues of endangerment, protection and preservation of the Boreal forest with the encroaching industrical development. LAURENT VAILLANCOURT (Hearst) is nourished by etymology, topography, botany, and the found objects he collects during field performances. Intimate and reflective, TANYA LUKIN LINKLATER’s work (North Bay) investigates the spaces between poetry, video and performance, women’s stories, and Indigenous languages. Finally, DEBAJEHMUJIG (Manitoulin Island) uses performance and storytelling to share the spiritual history of the Anishinaabeg people.

Special thanks: the National Arts Centre and the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generous support of this project. Definitely Superior, La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, and White Water Gallery.

Gallery 101 gratefully acknowledges the support of the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts. Gallery 101 thanks the Asinabka: Film & Media Arts Festival, Niigaan: In Conversation, our members, volunteers, partners, and all our relations.
