Description: 

A retrospective with a twist, Looking Back / Looking Forward looks back to the first exhibition of the CLGA national portrait collection (npc) in 1998, on
the 25th anniversary of the founding of the cLGA.  kd lang, Richard Fung, Gloria Eshkibok, Svend Robinson, Douglas Stewart and Jane Rule were among the first 25 men and women whose portraits were commissioned for inclusion in the npc. Focusing on the first 25 inductees to the npc, we now ask: where are they today, 14 years later? And we ask of the npc: how can this portrait collection continue to contribute to queer identity formation? How do practices of commemoration function to create knowledge? What responsibility should we take in authorizing a history in portraiture?
The exhibition features recent images, stories, and memories of and about the sitters. some of the original inductees will be present at the opening, as
well as one of the original co-curators, Bruce Jones.
The exhibition is sponsored in part through anonymous donations, including support for the curatorial internship held by co-curator, Jessica Parker.

NOTE TO RESEARCHERS:
Some of our materials are stored off site. Before visiting the archives, please send us an email at queeries@clga.ca listing in detail the topics and sources that you wish to consult and we will let you know when they will be available. We aim to respond to email inquiries within 4 business days.

The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives is located on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The CLGA strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
