New retrospective explores the 50-year career of First Nations artist Robert Houle – The Star
Dec. 3, 2021
TORONTO – The half-century long career of renowned Saulteaux and Anishinaabe artist Robert Houle is the focus of a new major retrospective at the Art Gallery of Ontario titled “Red is Beautiful.”
The exhibition, named after one of Houle’s earliest pieces, features more than 100 works including monumental paintings, intimate drawings and large-scale installations as well as personal and archival photos.
Putting together the show has been two years in the making but a dream of Houle’s for longer. The artist, who is 74, wanted to do a retrospective before he turns 75 next year. His work has been part of two other major shows but this is the largest exhibit to date.
“It’s kind of frightening. Makes me realize how old I am,” Houle said with a chuckle during a phone call.
