I Was Thinking About You, Dear Jared, 1978 by Barbara Astman is highlighted in the book Moving the Museum: Indigenous + Canadian Art at the AGO that will be published by Goose Lane Editions in January 2023. Edited by Wanda Nanibush and Georgiana Uhlyarik the book documents the reopening of the J.S. McLean Centre for Indigenous & Canadian Art with a renewed focus on the AGO’s Indigenous art collection. The volume reflects the nation-to-nation treaty relationship that is the foundation of Canada, asking questions, discovering truths, and leading conversations that address the weight of history and colonialism.
