Chantal Gibson is an artist-educator living and working in Vancouver; her mother is from Nova Scotia. Gibson’s connection to this place and its history has informed this exhibit and her associated book. Reimagining books and objects her mother may have “read” as a child growing up in Halifax in the 1950s, Gibson unpacks notions about Black and Indigenous people embedded in a world of history books and grade school spellers. In How She Read, which includes a 3000-page hanging book installation memorializing the early Black settlers in Nova Scotia, Gibson’s spectacular multimedia works come together for the first time in Nova Scotia to explode assumptions and to welcome viewers to re-read seemingly ordinary texts and objects through a new lens.
