Rosalie Favell (b. 1958) is a photo-based Métis artist from Canada whose work is inspired by her Indigenous heritage."Rosalie Favell: Indigenous Artists Facing the Camera" presents over 115 black and white portraits that speak loudly of the broad diversity of Indigenous people engaged in the arts and cultural community. The exhibition draws from the artist’s monumental archive "Facing the Camera," consisting of more than 500 photographs taken between 2008 and 2018 in North America and Australia, as well as a selection of new portraits showcasing the vibrant and thriving community of Indigenous artists based in and near Chicago. Favell’s work is a living visual history and a critical intervention in expanding the visibility of contemporary Indigenous artists and arts professionals. 

Rosalie Favell: Indigenous Artists Facing the Camera is curated by Corinne Granof, Academic Curator, and Felipe Gutierrez, 2022–23 Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow, at The Block Museum of Art. Major support for the exhibition is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibition is also generously supported by the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, the Alumnae of Northwestern University, and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
