The Block presents the first Chicago presentation of Rosalie Favell: Facing the Camera. Rosalie Favell (b. 1958) is a photo-based artist who draws inspiration from her Métis heritage and family to create complex self-portraits and portraits. For her series Facing the Camera (2008–18), Favell photographed Indigenous members of arts communities in North America and Australia, producing 500 photographs. This work is a rewriting of history and a living art history—a critical intervention in expanding the visibility of contemporary Indigenous artists and arts professionals.
