Full-colour, hardcover publication documenting Robert Houle’s exhibition Paris/Ojibwa (AGP: May 14 to September 4, 2011). Essays by Nelcya Delanoë, Robert Houle, David MacIntosh, and Barry Ace.

Paris/Ojibwa re-imagines a grant 1845 Parisian room in which two cultures, Ojibwa and French, made contact, evoking the lingering memory of the historical Maungwudaus and his Mississauga Nishnaabeg dance troupe performing for the Parisian court. Paris/Ojibwa honours the memory of the Indigenous dance troupe, reflecting on the crucial theme of aesthetics of disappearance.

Paris/Ojibwa premiered at the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, and made its North American debut at the AGP.
