Sarindar Dhaliwal: The Radcliffe Line And Other Geographies
Catalogue Launch

Wednesday, May 30, 6:30 to 8 pm
TYPE Books, 883 Queen Street West, Toronto


Please join us to celebrate the launch of The Radcliffe Line and Other Geographies, a major publication on the work of Sarindar Dhaliwal.

Co-published by Rodman Hall Art Centre/Brock University, The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford, and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, the catalogue documents an exhibition that brought together monumental works from Dhaliwal’s oeuvre of the last twenty years to contextualize her recent work addressing the legacy of the Partition of India. Working in sculpture, installation, video, photography, and painting, Dhaliwal weaves compelling narratives that explore issues of culture, migration, and identity. Through lush, visually stunning imagery and poetic language she finds reparation for the past, responding to colonial histories with a critical approach that maintains reverence for wonder and imagination so that, as Dhaliwal describes, she may return beauty to the world.

Designed by Lauren Wickware, the publication features texts by Marcie Bronson, Richard Fung, Linda Jansma, Anne Koval, Deborah Root, Laura Schneider, and MJ Thompson; and photography by Toni Hafkenscheid.

Sarindar Dhaliwal: The Radcliffe Line and Other Geographies is published with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

About the artist:
Sarindar Dhaliwal is a Toronto-based artist. She was born in the Punjab, raised in London, England, and has lived in Canada since 1968. She received her BFA with a concentration in sculpture from University College Falmouth, UK, and her MFA from York University. She is currently enrolled in the Cultural Studies PhD program at Queen’s University. Dhaliwal was the 2012 recipient of the Canada Council International Residency at Artspace in Sydney, Australia. She has exhibited widely in Canada since the 1980s. Recent solo exhibitions include Narratives from the Beyond at the Surrey Art Gallery (2013); the cartographer’s mistake: Southall and other places, A Space Gallery, Toronto (2013); the cartographer’s mistake: hockey fields and marigold maps, Robert Langen Art Gallery, Waterloo (2012); and Galerie D’Este, Montreal (2010). In 2011 she participated in exhibitions in Stony Plain, Alberta; Victoria and Abbotsford, British Columbia; and at the Vadehra Art Gallery in Delhi, India. From 2004 through 2006, Record Keeping, a touring survey exhibition co-curated by Sunil Gupta (London/Delhi) and Jan Allen of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, travelled to six venues in England, Wales, and Canada.
