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.

Edwin Janzen: Remote

September 26th - October 19th, 2019

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 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.
