Bridget Moser: How Does It Feel
September 28 to January 18

How Does It Feel is comprised of a series of wordless gestures and poses, performed by the artist, alone in a brown-and-taupe Delta hotel room. In brilliant contrast to her surroundings, she is dressed entirely in cobalt blue. She wears a blank expression and a handknit sweater with long drooping arms that give her gestures an additional air of mournfulness. As she whiles away her time staring at the ceiling, hiding in the drapes, and struggling with the hideabed, she uncovers specific, strangely perfect objects, also out of place amidst the oppressively generic décor of the hotel bedroom. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Central Mediatheque.


Bridget Moser: Every Room is a Waiting Room
November 3 to January 14
Performance and Reception: Friday, November 3, 7 pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, November 4, 2 pm, New Dance Horizons, 2207 Harvey Street

Bridget Moser is a Toronto-based artist who works predominantly in performance and video. Her work is suspended between prop comedy, experimental theatre, performance art, absurd literature, existential anxiety, and intuitive dance. Every Room is a Waiting Room features new videos and an opening night live performance that bring together an assortment of incongruous objects, gestures, texts, and sounds. By intentionally misusing her selected objects, Moser mines them for their comic and transformative potential, and subtly interrogates the systems that attempt to shape our tastes and dictate how we engage with the world of consumer goods. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Central Gallery.

Moser’s artist talk will feature live excerpts from performances of Hold Please (2014), A Leaf That Tastes Like a Pencil (2015) and Season of the Witch (2016). Presented in partnership with New Dance Horizons. New Dance Horizons, 2207 Harvey Street, Regina, SK.


Catherine Blackburn: Tell Me the Truth
October 14 to January 3

A bead artist, painter and jeweler, Catherine Blackburn’s art practice is informed by her Dene and European ancestry. The Leask, Saskatchewan-based artist considers Canada's colonial past and present through an exploration of her own personal relationships and life experiences. The pieces in Tell Me the Truth use media, materials and artistic processes including beadwork and quilling, photography, sculpture, and painting, to connect subjects both personal and political: the history of the fur trade in Canada, familial relationships, Catholicism, the Dene language, loss, and the body. Curated by Jennifer Matotek, Director/Curator. Sherwood Gallery.


Touring Exhibitions

Material Girls
Morehshin Allahyari, Jaime Angelopoulos, Christi Belcourt, Katherine Boyer, Karin Bubaš, Andrea Carlson, Ying-Yueh Chuang, Alex Cu Unjieng, Raphaëlle de Groot, Abigail DeVille, Soheila Esfahani, Ran Hwang, Sarah Anne Johnson, Felice Koenig, Rachel Ludlow, Deirdre Logue, Jodie Mack, Amy Malbeuf, Sanaz Mazinani, Meryl McMaster, Tricia Middleton, Allyson Mitchell, Dominique Rey, Winnie Truong, and Marie Watt
September 14 to December 30

Material Girls is about women taking up space. This large-scale exhibition brings together Canadian and international emerging, mid-career and senior female artists from across artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds. Uniting these works is an exploration of material process and notions of excess as they relate to the feminized body, gendered space and capitalist desire. Sumptuous, decorative and visually overwhelming, the exhibition space becomes a horror vacui, a jubilant and visceral counterpoint to the standard conventions of the austere white cube. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek, and Wendy Peart. Rodman Hall Art Centre, 109 St. Paul Crescent, St. Catherines, ON.


When Raven Became Spider
Joi T. Arcand, Sonny Assu, Shaun Beyale, Julianne Herney, Elle Májá Tailfeathers, and Jeffrey Veregge
September 21 to October 29

Taking its title from a body of work by Sonny Assu, depicting Spiderman in a traditional Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw style, When Raven Became Spider examines supernatural characters in Indigenous stories and contemporary comic books. These artists and storytellers depict Indigenous super-beings using popular comic book imagery, blurring the line between oral and graphic storytelling. Can their characters, in their new forms, still transmit old-world oratory tales, teaching us something about the frail human condition? Curated by Leena Minifie. Art Gallery of Sudbury, 251 John Street, Sudbury, ON.
