Description [en]

Untitled (Entitled) is a text-based installation that is an extension of Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn’s exploration on the ideological construction of white-colonial settler’s multiculturalism and its mechanisms. In a study titled “Why Do Some Employers Prefer to Interview Matthew, but Not Samir? New Evidence from Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver”, scholars Philip Oreopoulos and Diane Dechief revealed that employers in these cities are nearly 35% more likely to call back a job applicant with a Western European name than someone with a name common in minority and Indigenous groups, regardless of the applicant’s experience. Although Canada perceives itself as a leader of multiculturalism, Oreopoulos & Dechief’s numbers show a gaping contradiction, specifically in regards to employment equity. Untitled (Entitled) is a critical assessment of the nation’s interpretation of multiculturalism, offering exposure into the daily realities and struggles of non-white lives who have been forced to implement westernized naming practices.
