March 29th - May 4th, 2024

NoteWe regret the college is closed from Friday, March 30 to Monday, April 1, inclusively.

Pedestrian Values reflects on economic shifts, labour patterns and development in post-industrial urban cities. Using metal fabrication, casting, and interventionist tactics to alter coded materials and infrastructure found in public space, the installations reveal underlying power structures in urban environments, critiquing capitalist value systems focused on profit and development, exposing how these ideals are built into our everyday environment.

The recurring banknote pattern from the board game, Monopoly, serves as an explicit critique of capital’s control over spatial relations that carries through the exhibition, adorning a traffic barrel, cast coins scattered across the floor of the gallery, and a construction privacy mesh.

Vernissage: Thursday, March 28th, 2024 at 5:00pm
Artist Talk: In gallery, Thursday, May 2, 12:15 pm.

Anahita Norouzi: Other Landscapes

October 14th - November 25th, 2021

Other Landscapes presents several multimedia works from Montreal-based Iranian artist Anahita Norouzi. It stems from her long-term research interest in the cross sections of botany and colonial politics, experiences of immigration and displacement, as well as issues of identity and memory.

Taking the form of a multimedia installation, the project results from a collaboration between the artist and eight refugees from the Middle East and Africa. Norouzi writes: ‘As a way to get closer to their stories, I focused on the objects that they brought with them on their journey.

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


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.
