Nadège Grebmeier Forget: Echo Figures for Pending Spaces—Occupations for Camera

March 1st - April 1st, 2021
Nadège Grebmeier Forget

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Nadège Grebmeier Forget’s distinguished interdisciplinary practice unfolds via durational, live, live-streamed, and private performances at times resulting in drawings, photographs or installations. In these performances, she models and hybridizes herself to defuse expectations of beauty and explore the effects (and affects) of the concerned gaze on an unfolding identity as it is observed and analyzed by herself and others. Seeking to confront desires and ideals (aesthetic, commercial, sexual, etc.) through an empowered and performative manipulation of her own image, she intrinsically questions the labour of making and becoming;




Screening Series: Thirza Cuthand, Reclamations

February 9th - 25th, 2021
Thirza Cuthand

Thirza Cuthand: Reclamations brings together a selection of work by this acclaimed artist, writer, and performer spanning over two decades and exploring with brutal honesty the humour and pathos in her life as a ‘bipolar butch lesbian of Plains Cree and Scottish descent.’   Since her first film about life as a lesbian in her Saskatoon high school drew international success, her short, low-budget, experimental videos explore autobiography and identity, the effects of racism and colonization, sexism, ageism, and issues surrounding mental health.




Andy Fabo: The Weight of Delirium

March 5th - September 16th, 2020

The works in this exhibition, The Weight of Delirium, were selected from two different bodies of my art of the last decade:  Delirious at the Borderlines (2012-13), a series consisting of both drawings and digital prints, and The Weight (2016-17), a collection of more than fifty iterative mixed-media drawings.

It seems appropriate to combine the two for this exhibition because both collections of work rely on metaphor and allegory to portray crisis.

Reclaiming My Place

October 31st - November 27th, 2019
Screen Shot 2019-10-21 at 2.37.09 PM

Reclaiming My Place is a group exhibition featuring the work of Sharon Norwood (Toronto/Savannah), Shanna Strauss (Montreal/Bay Area,CA) and Cedar-Eve (Tiohtià:ke/Toronto). Curated by Cécilia Bracmort, their works present strategies to combat structural oppression from a feminist and decolonial perspective. A blend of resistance and resilience, the works of these artists push back representational boundaries and decompartmentalize the imaginary landscape. Heeding the call of this inner voice, they intercept the messages of their ancestors, transmitting them to future generations through their artistic practices.




Edwin Janzen: Remote

September 26th - October 19th, 2019
Untitled No. 5 (Remotes)

With the twentieth century’s latter decades came the arrival of the humble remote-control handset, elevating consumers of media to new heights of power over their T.V. sets, VCRs, DVD players, and other electronic devices. With their sleek lines and crisp designs, remote controllers translated a Cold War-era, militarist command-and-control ideology into an aesthetic form and infiltrated it into the world’s living rooms. With remotes in hand, consumers became armchair emperors and generals. In his exhibition Remote, artist Edwin Janzen turns the spotlight onto these consumer electronic artifacts to investigate the shadow-world of humankind’s obsession with technologies of control.




Jobena Petonoquot: Rebellion of My Ancestors

August 26th - September 18th, 2019
Reservation Bonnet (installation view)

Rebellion of my Ancestors is infused with Jobena Petonoquot’s familial history and its intersections within the history of colonization in Canada. Petonoquot’s beaded works record the memories and stories of her family; photographs, sculpture, prints, and installation articulate an uncompromising Indigenous resiliency and cultural continuity.

Jobena Petonoquot was born in Maniwaki, and raised on the Kitigan Zibi reservation, where she currently lives and works. A graduate Concordia University in 2012, Petonoquot majored in art history and completed a minor in photography.
