Drew Ann Wake, curator.

The Inquiry exhibition examines the Berger Inquiry (1974-77) through the
eyes of 32 participants from Dene, Inuvialuit and non-Aboriginal
communities along the Mackenzie River. The exhibition is designed around
life-size portraits taken by Calgary photographer, Linda MacCannell. The
exhibition is interactive, visitors are asked to put themselves in Judge
Berger's chair, to read conflicting views and debate possible
recommendations. The exhibition has clear parallels with policy
discussions taking place across Canada today, therefore visitors are
invited to post
their recommendations on the wall or on the project website.
