February 2nd, 2022

After almost two years, Dawson’s 2020 Visual Arts graduates are pleased to present how their practices have flourished and prospered, while staying true to their understanding of eudaimonia.*

Twenty graduates from the 2020 Visual Arts cohort present work in media ranging from digital photography to sculpture, painting, drawing, and video at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery from Jan. 27 to Feb. 19, 2022.

* Aristotle utilized eudaimonia as the term for the highest human good, an objective standard of ‘happiness’ based on what it means to live a human life well. The title is the same as the original graduating 2020 exhibition, which could only happen online due to the first lockdown.

Anahita Norouzi: Other Landscapes opens Oct. 14

October 13th, 2021

Other Landscapes is a new exhibit at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery of Dawson (just off the Upper Atrium cafeteria on the 2nd floor). Open from Oct. 14- Nov. 25, it 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.

Thirza Cuthand: Reclamations

February 9th, 2021

When the pandemic first struck last March, curator and Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery administrator Rhonda Meier, began thinking of what could be done if life stayed completely online for the next six or more months. With online projects being the obvious solution, she leapt to program Thirza Cuthand, a Plains Cree/Scots artist whose work first intrigued her in Vancouver in 2003. At Indian Acts, a conference on indigenous performance art, a very young Cuthand presented a video candidly discussing her struggle with depression.

Resistance and Resilience opens Oct. 8

October 7th, 2020

Following the success of Skénn:en: Peace and Decolonization (2017) and Queer and Peace (2018), Diana Rice (Programming Coordinator, Peace Centre) prophetically conceived of a project that would provide a space for those voices traditionally unheard and often ignored: Legacy and racialized immigrant communities. Once again collaborating with Rhonda Meier of the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery, the work began in 2018 to create a platform for artists to display their experiences of racism and systemic oppression.

This vision is brought to life in Resistance and Resilience. Click Read More for the homepage news story.
