Resistance and Resilience: An online exhibition

October 8th, 2020 - June 30th, 2022
Pilar Escobar

Exhibit website:

Twelve artists from first or second generation migrant/immigrant racialized communities of colour present work exploring  the  racism and systemic oppression they have experienced.   At times poetic, at times harrowing, their work in video, sculpture, installation and textiles seeks to open up dialogue and complexify discussions surrounding migration and narratives of nationalism, benevolence, and fear.

Initially proposed by Diana Rice of the Dawson College Centre for Peace, the exhibition was also conceived to include student, or emerging artists, who were selected by a jury following an open call for submissions.   

Vernissage: Thursday, October 8th, 2020 at 5:00pm
Artist Talk: Available soon on the Resistance website.

Excerpt from catalogue, by Cameron Skene

“If you’re going through hell, keep going” – Winston Churchill


The state of spiritual suspension is reinforced by Oxley’s recent work: vessels hung from the top of the picture plane, combined with a surface reassembled from disparate painterly strategies, marks, textures and forms. Caves and outcroppings, for instance, become a formal device as well as supporting metaphors for this place of pause.

Cleave, a path in the wilderness by Penelope Stewart

February 18th - March 12th, 2016

Responsiveness to space and an engagement with its architecture, history and ideologies is central to my practice. Recently, these interventions have explored the beehive metaphor in architecture, with connections between the symbolic, political and artistic spin-offs of the beehive. An eco-morphology contemplates the hive, hive culture, desire and loss as metaphor for our utopian aspirations to return to the garden.

Correspondences: Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino

January 7th - February 6th, 2016
Correspondences – YG AM

Correspondences, by Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino, confronts us with the twofold challenge of seeing both distances and proximities between the works of each artist. While skeptics may be surprised at this particular pairing of artists, they will likely be even more surprised, as well as confounded, by the experience that awaits them: they will be gently struck by the wealth and depth of the dialogues that take shape between two bodies of work that, on the surface, have so little in common.
