This season of exhibitions presents an exciting roster of artists shedding light on the landscape, great literature and narratives of place.
Projects include Bewabon Shilling: Between the Forest and the Sky, a major solo show of recent paintings by Rama Mnjikaning First Nation artist Bewabon Shilling; This Tremendous Arc featuring illustrations of canonical literature by visual artist, actor, novelist, poet, screenwriter and playwright, Bertram Brooker (1888-1955); Northern Convergences: Felix Kalmenson, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Jeneen Frei Njootli, Charles Stankievech, which brings together four contemporary artists who reread these holdings as a colonial archive, illuminating resonances between Russian and Canadian colonialism from 1733 to the present; a screening of three films by Isuma, (In)tangible Archives, which investigate archives as both physical and oral repositories; and Sovfoto 20/20, which examines the aesthetics of innovation as a means of demonstrating how artist and designers can be architects of the future.
Our Winter Exhibitions are made possible with the generous support of Barriston Law.
