When Raven Became Spider
Joi T. Arcand, Sonny Assu, Shaun Beyale, Julianne Herney, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, and Jeffrey Veregge
January 12 to March 23

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. Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Penner Road, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Heather Cline: Quiet Stories
January 13 to March 14

Over the past ten years, Regina-based artist Heather Cline has been quietly gathering stories from residents of communities across Canada, collecting personal and regional histories. Through a series of artist residency projects and public engagements, Cline interviewed diverse subjects, including farmers on combines in rural Manitoba, fruit growers in Vernon, British Columbia, and school children in Ardrossan, Alberta. The interviews inspired Cline to paint different geographical locations, connecting with the subject matter through other people’s experiences of place. Audio excerpts from the artist’s interviews are interspersed amongst the paintings to create a rich and intimate audience experience. Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of Education and Community Outreach. Sherwood Gallery.

Anna Anthropy: Herding Cats
January 18 to April 4

Anna Anthropy makes fun and simple videogames, as well as tabletop games, puzzle games, cooperative games, interactive fiction, and zines. Her work explores autobiographical subjects ranging from the personal to the fantastical to the everyday. Herding Cats features an 8-bit, purple-haired, unrepentant cat lady who is on a mission to make friends with every cat in the neighbourhood. Addressing subjects and scenarios often overlooked in the videogame world, Anthropy is part of a growing movement of queer, trans, and femme indie game developers who are making space for other voices in the scene. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Central Mediatheque.

Bev Pike: Grottesque
January 19 to March 25
Artist Talk (ASL Interpreted) and Reception: Friday, January 19, 6:00 pm

Winnipeg artist Bev Pike is known for her monumentally-scaled, performative landform paintings. Painted with gouache on paper, Pike’s works are hung at floor level, stretch well above the highest heads, and are no less than eighteen feet in length, enveloping the viewer. Pike’s most recent series, Underground Living, depicts underground grottos and caves, lush with baroque detailing. Giving her paintings evocative titles like Cavernous Sun Parlour, Buried Dancing Pavilion, and Subterranean Day Spa, Pike suggests that these are leisure sites of a new underground civilization. Pike’s spaces reference English landscape garden grottos and follies popular from the 15th to the 19th century, while evoking the interiority of the human body and the cave dwellings of humanity’s most distant past. Strangely science fictional, these vast and empty interiors invite the viewer to psychically inhabit them, imagining a host of apocalyptic scenarios that could necessitate moving underground. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Central Gallery.
