Keys to our success
April 25 – June 25, 2023
|Tissue is a group show curated from the studios of UBCO fine art students. These colourful artworks portray unique ways of expressing relationships to the body. Whether it be through textiles, sculpting or painting, we see the importance of acknowledging oneself in the process of learning, growing and creating. Tissue is the delicate skin, the gossamer fabric that keeps us all together. Perhaps within the intimate, we seek the ultimate understanding of ourselves.
Written and curated by Jorden Doody
|on and with the land
November 24 – March 31
|Indigenous perspectives are diverse and embody nation-specific teachings, including intergenerational relationships and kinship structures, places of belonging, experiences of displacement and dispossession, and the spaces where we relocate and may or may not call home. Indigenous peoples are informed by historical and ongoing colonization and the dynamics of being related to and with ancestral homelands that continue to be affected by colonial settler systems. Located within the unceded territories of the syilx people, on and with the land, evokes intimate moments with the land. Art is an intrinsic form of Indigenous expression; within this exhibition, the artists are dedicated to an art practice they convey powerfully and personally, Providing us with insight, learning, and understanding. Beyond the dichotomies of ‘urban’ and ‘bush’, ‘traditional’ and ‘contemporary’ Indigenous artists are pushing all boundaries of materials, tools, space, subject matter, and roles in the creative pursuit to reimagine these conversations.
|The untold story of love in the West. Cowfolk explores the parallels between the heteronormative-colonial imaginary and the clique of the Lone Ranger when looking back at the American West. Cowfolk uncovers the hidden identities and narratives with imagery of lovers and riders, some of which were intentionally curated and staged by the artist and then painted in the well-known romantic genre.
