EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS

The travelling exhibition Cat's Cradle features work by Alberta artists Sondra Meszaros, Jane Ash Poitras and Angeline Simon. Work by each artist employs photomontage, a collage technique involving the collecting, organizing, arranging and fixing of photographs and other media into new arrangements. The resulting artwork can be understood as attempts to dissect and reveal hidden or peripheral histories of identity, emotion, social norms and other cultural-political arenas of both personal and civilizational significance.

FEB 3 – APR 6, 2024 ︎︎︎ Patch Portraits

Patch Portraits showcases the work of Michelle Sound and Raneece Buddan, two artists who employ fabrics and materials of cultural heritage to explore the genre of portraiture and identity. Stitching, patching and collaging together found and fabricated textiles, the resulting bodies of work by each artist showcase multiple ways in which threads and fabrics can be deployed in contemporary art practices.
