Part I, Sixty Years a Queen by Peter Trepanier
Saturday, October 13
1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Part of Royal Subjects Speaker Series
Seeing Queen Elizabeth II as the ultimate performance artist (one who doesn’t merely act out her role as Queen, but rather embodies it), Peter Trepanier has been assembling pictures documenting her reign for the past ten years. As collector and artist, Trepanier explores images of the Queen and her family using collage to offer insight to our collective perception of the monarch and her place in our national ethos. Peter Trepanier is Head of Reader Services at the Library of the National Gallery of Canada.
