Christopher Campbell Gardiner: Riddance
April 1 to June 14, 2017
Artist in attendance throughout exhibition: Monday-Friday, 10 am to 4 pm
Reception: Saturday, June 3, 1 pm

Riddance represents a shift in artist Christopher Campbell Gardiner’s remarkably consistent, process-based, and highly-introverted work. For nearly 25 years, Gardiner has been creating anxiety containments, encasing objects that are a source or symbol of personal anxieties in cloth, lead-lined boxes, hand-stitched cotton, and paint. For this exhibition, members of the public were invited to contribute a handwritten letter explaining a personal anxiety, fear, or negativity, which will be permanently encased by the artist, onsite in the gallery, a practice that aims to reconcile the anxieties of others. Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of Education and Community Outreach. Sherwood Gallery.


Roewan Crowe: Lifting Stone
Performance and Artist Talk: Friday, April 28, 7:00 pm

In Lifting Stone, Winnipeg artist Roewan Crowe invites you to join her in a desert landscape for an intimate encounter with a poetic text. Performing excerpts from her book Quivering Land, a rather queer Western that attempts to reckon with the legacies of violence and colonization, she creates a space of vulnerability and connection. The artist invokes Leslie Feinberg and their work on “stone butch” to articulate a queer femme notion of “stone,” opening up an exploration of art encounters that contemplate non-physical touching and the act of being touched. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Presented in partnership with the University of Regina, Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance Interdisciplinary Studies Program – Departments of Visual Arts and Women’s and Gender Studies. Talk is part of the University of Regina Creative Technologies MediaLab Series. Central Gallery.

Wafaa Bilal: 168:01
May 5 to June 25, 2017
Reception: Friday, May 5, 7 pm

In 168:01, Iraqi-born, New York-based artist Wafaa Bilal takes the Bayt al-Hikma, or House of Wisdom, as a starting point for an installation of a library of empty white books. The Bayt al-Hikma housed the largest library in the world, until it was destroyed in a Mongol siege. Today, it is a well-known example of historic cultural loss as a casualty of wartime. Throughout the duration of 168:01, the white books will be replaced with visitor donations. Afterward, the donated books will be sent to The College of Fine Arts at the University of Baghdad to help rebuild their library, which was looted and destroyed in 2003, symbolizing the power of individuals to rectify violence inflicted on cultural spaces. Curated by Srimoyee Mitra. Organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Windsor. Central Gallery.


Ursula Biemann: Subatlantic
May 4 to July 5, 2017

Zurich-based artist Ursula Biemann immerses her camera deep in oceanic waters to ponder upon the entanglements of geological time with that of human history. Her speculative video-essay interweaves vast cinematic landscapes with documentary footage, science fiction poetry and academic findings to narrate a changing planetary reality. Curated by Jennifer Matotek, Director/Curator. Central Mediatheque.


Camp, Trash, Filth – John Waters Visits Regina
June 14-24, 2017

Legendary and much-loved American filmmaker and author John Waters – best known for his feature films Hairspray and Pink Flamingos – will travel to Regina to give a 90-minute talk entitled This Filthy World, on June 24, 2017 at Westminster United Church, 3025 – 13th Avenue, followed by a VIP reception and book signing. John Waters’ talk is part of a special project entitled Camp, Trash, Filth – John Waters Visits Regina and will include RPL Film Theatre screenings of Mr. Waters’ early and more recent films. Acclaimed Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce, renowned Canadian performance artists Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Milan, Lex Vaughn, and other special guests will also be in attendance as a way to further celebrate and provide a Canadian perspective on the outrageously imaginative themes and characters in Mr. Waters’ films. Curated by Gary Varro, Artistic Director, Queer City Cinema. Presented by Queer City Cinema in partnership with Dunlop Art Gallery and RPL Film Theatre. RPL Film Theatre and offsite locations.

Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed: BUBBLE GUM PINK, Artist Talk, and Edible Publication Launch
Monday, June 19, 7 pm

Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed will discuss their recent art-making with Kindergarten to Grade 6 school children, including publication formats (the book Multiple Elementary and the “edible publication” SOUR VS SOUR, a chocolate bar), that serve to cultivate contemporary art audiences beyond the school.

While in Regina, Jickling and Reed will also work with Grade 7 students from Prairie Sky School on a socially-engaged project called BUBBLE GUM PINK. Here, infrastructural negotiation, “kid knowledge,” ethical methodologies, and formal artistic concerns come together, as the students consider the imaginative potential of gum as a material and product. RPL Film Theatre.

Dunlop Art Gallery acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Canada, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture, and Saskatchewan Lotteries.
