REBUILD

In this issue of Visual Arts News many of our featured artists exhume relics from our histories, not merely as historians or archeologists, compensating for history’s tendency of telling only the victor’s stories; they’re alchemists, reanimating and transforming lost memories buried deep within forgotten landfills of our collective consciousness.

Highlights include:

  • Q&A with Brendan Fernandes
  • Review: Raven DavisThe De-Celebration of Canada
  • Festival Spotlights: Uncommon Common Art & Photopolis
  • Dispatch from the Venice Biennale
  • Artist spotlight: Jessica Gnyp

PLUS
Review of Jerry Ropson’s to kiss a goat between the horns by Craig Francis Power; Brenda Francis Pelkey gazes at inhabited spaces by Kathleen Higgins; Sound etiquette and the politics of noise by Ray Cronin.

PANEL DISCUSSION
Moving Forward, Looking B(l)ack: Visual Art in Nova Scotia
Friday Oct 13, 2017, 6:30pm.
Halifax North Memorial Library (wheelchair accessible)
A panel discussion featuring women who curate, create and activate.
Pamela Edmonds, Lucie Chan, Bria Miller, Jade Peek. Facilitated by Sylvia Hamilton.

Despite there being many talented Black artists and curators in and from Nova Scotia, resources, access to and public knowledge about their contributions to Nova Scotia's visual arts are limited. This panel hopes to build on and celebrate the knowledge of Black/ Afro-Indigenous/ African Nova Scotian women who are creating, curating and activating in the visual arts.

This event comes out of archival research done by Research Coordinator Chris Shapones for the 40th anniversary of Visual Arts Nova Scotia, which publishes, Visual Arts News.

PODCAST: ARTIST-TO-ARTIST
Emily Lawrence in conversation with Kyle Alden Martens
Both artists create playful work that subtly destabilizes traditionally heteronormative arenas—sports for Martens and mainstream porn and Martha Stewart cooking demonstrations for Lawrence—while making their audiences laugh through any discomfort of not knowing the new rules of the game.

Go to our EXHIBITION LISTINGS to see what’s on now across the Atlantic region.
