Bills of Change
Jan 20 2023
exhibition in-person

‘Bills of Change’ is an exploration into reconciliation through art. For as long as Canada has been printing money, an Indigenous woman has never appeared on a Canadian banknote. With the passing of most recent occupant of the $20 bill, Queen Elizabeth II, the Native Women’s Association of Canada saw an opportunity to bring this figure to light, and hopefully bring an end to it too. Working with Indigenous artists they created a collection of dollar bills that for the first time bear the faces of history’s most significant Indigenous women. Prints of the artwork are available online with all proceeds going to the artists, and an online petition is calling for more Indigenous representation, starting with the next design of the $20 bill.
