Opening Reception for Art Gallery of Guelph’s Fall Exhibitions | Thursday, September 14 at 7 pm

This fall, the Art Gallery of Guelph presents a series of thought-provoking exhibitions that take as their starting point the contested relationship of identity, landscape, and place. Join us Thursday, September 14th at 7 pm for a public reception to celebrate the opening of 150 Acts: Art, Activism, Impact, My curiosities are not your curios, and Light in the Land: The Nature of Canada.

150 Acts: Art, Activism, Impact (Sep 14, 2017 – Feb 11, 2018)
150 Acts: Art, Activism, Impact provides a platform for diverse Indigenous narratives that highlight art practices as simultaneously personal, conceptual, cultural, political, and social acts, featuring foundational works from AGG’s collections complemented by new artistic practices. Compelled by the powerful historical and geographical dynamics embodied in our relationship to the lands upon which we live, work, and create, this exhibition re-narrates landscape through art practices that actively engage our collective histories and possible futures. This project has been made possible by the Government of Canada, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council. The Art Gallery of Guelph is also grateful for the partnership and support of Partners in Art. read more >

My curiosities are not your curios (Sep 14 – Dec 17, 2017)
Curated by 2017 Middlebrook Prize winner Yasmin Nurming-Por, this exhibition features the work of contemporary artists for whom the act of collecting is both a creative and critical practice: Sara Cwynar (New York, NY), Hannah Doerksen (Calgary, AB), Deborah Edmeades (New York, NY/ Vancouver, BC), Faye HeavyShield (Blood Reserve, Alberta), and Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetok (d. 2012, Arviat, Nunavut). Created in 2012, the Middlebrook Prize for Young Canadian Curators is presented annually to a Canadian curator under 30 and is made possible through the support of the Centre Wellington Community Foundation’s Middlebrook Social Innovation Fund, The Guelph Community Foundation: Musagetes Fund, and through private donations. read more >
