New Acquisitions to AGM Permanent Art Collection

The AGM is honoured to announce the acquisition of Jeff Thomas’s What Happened to the Mississauga’s? at the conclusion of his solo exhibition, A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with George Hunter and Edward S. Curtis. This generous donation by the artist was a focal point of the exhibition, and is contextually relevant to the Gallery’s redirected collecting mandate. Our FIRST NEW NEXT mandate acts as a strategy for the growth of the collection, supporting the pursuit of creative enterprise that embraces diversity, inclusivity and collaboration.

“When I began my career in 1980, I searched for and couldn’t find any photographic work produced by Indigenous people in museum and art gallery collections. I wanted to see what other Indigenous image-makers had made with a camera, and build upon it. As a consequence, I have donated works to institutions with the idea that someone looking for an Indigenous voice, will find something to work with. It is equally important to also work with museums and galleries that recognize the importance of having Indigenous voices in their exhibition spaces and in their collections. And now, having worked with the Art Gallery of Mississauga for my exhibition, I want to donate What Happened to the Mississauga’s? to your collection.” – Jeff Thomas, 2017

Jeff Thomas is an urban-based Iroquois, self-taught photo-based artist, writer, public speaker and curator, living in Ottawa, Ontario, who has works in major collections in Canada, the United States and Europe. His most recent solo shows were The Dancing Grounds, Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with Nicholas de Grandmaison, University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, Lethbridge, Alberta, Ontario, and Resistance Is NOT Futile, Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto, Ontario.
Thomas has also been in many group shows, including l:ke – Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989, Art Gallery of Ontario, Land/Slide: Possible Futures, Markham, Ontario, SAKAHÀN, National Gallery of Canada, UNMASKING: Arthur Renwick, Adrian Stimson, Jeff Thomas, Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris, France. In 1998, he was awarded the Canada Council’s prestigious Duke and Duchess of York Award in Photography and was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Art. In 2008, he received The Karsh Award in photography, and in 2017, Thomas received a REVAL Indigenous Art Award.
