Budget Cuts (2012)
Budget Cuts, AKA Gallery and Paved Arts, Saskatoon, 2012 is a continuation of my work, We Are Sorry. For the billboard, I compiled a list of Aboriginal organizations whose budgets had been severely cut since the federal government’s 2008 apology for the Indian Residential School system. It was installed in a high-density Aboriginal neighbourhood in Saskatoon. The colours used match those immediately surrounding the site: for example, yellow of the pavement marking line on the street, pink and red of the attached building and aqua of the AKA Gallery sign.
