Exhibitions

Biennial 15

November 3rd - December 3rd, 2022
David Baumflek, Poor Relations, ceramic, 2002

Biennial 15 marks 30 years of Dawson Fine Arts Faculty members exhibiting their current art works at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery. It continues this long tradition of investigating the relationship between art making and learning, as well as reflects on the history of the biennial.

All faculty—past and present—of the Fine Arts department will have images and texts in the catalogue which accompanies the exhibition. There will also be a sound component containing faculty’s responses to the question of how the biennial has played a role in the pedagogical innovations of Dawson’s reputed Fine Arts Department.


Vernissage: Thursday, November 3rd, 2022 at 5:30pm


Pareidola: Dawson College Professional Photography

December 8th - 15th, 2022
Lem Campbell

Pareidolia is the ability to see or make pictures out of randomness. Seeing beyond what the average person sees and expressing that vision in an image is a large part of training to be a photographer. This collection of work by Dawson’s third-year photography students embodies how they see people, places or objects in their world.

Twenty two students are showing their work, including: Ayah Alatrash, Yisségnon-Chris Avosse, Sophie Becquet, Samuel Bermudez Fernandez, Lemuel Campbell, Mark Cedeno Moreno, Emma Cloghesy, Emma Diz-Giguère, Jilliane Flores, Jade Franco-Ehrmann, Alexe Grignard, Elizabeth Huppé, Sandra Kucko, Desireen Layne, Bramanda Mahaputra, Nour Naggar-Osama, Maya Naidu, Thibault Quach, Damon Roloff, Bianca Tedeschi, Mateo Vega Cantu, Daphné Voisine.


Vernissage: Thursday, December 8th, 2022 at 6:00pm


Counterpart: Students Photograph Students

September 9th - 24th, 2021

Counterpart stems from an assignment Photography faculty members Peter Berra and David Hopkins introduced in their 2019 Photo Studio 2 class: photograph another student who is a stranger. Afterwards, Berra compiled these images into a portrait of both individual and collective identity, in all its beauty, poignancy, and complexity.




Selected Self / Portraits

July 19th - September 3rd, 2021

The act of looking at oneself reflected on a screen, or through a lens, is inherent to the production of portraiture.  As many of us spend our days staring at ourselves on screens in endless Zoom meetings over endless hours, how we appear, how long we gaze and measure our own image(s) is occurring at an almost unprecedented, and probably unhealthy scale.

In this 20 minute compilation, David Baumflek has thoughtfully selected work by six second-year Visual Arts students:  Marina Diolaiti, Ariane Labbé, Camille Mota, Linda Dao, Jennifer Orr, and Sabrina Perrotti.

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

March 1st - April 1st, 2021

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: 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.  




Faculty of Fine Arts Biennial 14

January 23rd - February 19th, 2020

The Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery is pleased to host the Fine Arts Faculty Biennial 14, opening January 23 and on view until February 19, 2020. The exhibition displays a uniquely broad range of contemporary practices and themes, from nineteen leaders of Montreal’s art and academic communities.

In 1992, Andres Manniste initiated the first Fine Arts Faculty Biennial exhibition at Dawson College. A highly respected senior member of the faculty, Manniste was motivated by the desire to share the rich and varied visual arts practices of the fine arts department with the Dawson community.

Reclaiming My Place

October 31st - November 27th, 2019

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.
