Join exhibiting artists Harley Morman and Justin Patterson for an in-person conversation about their new exhibitions “Don’t Dream It, Be It” and “Full Bad Moon.”

Harley Morman’s visual work takes a playful approach to considering the socioeconomic relations among artists and institutions. His ongoing artistic research scampers around the intersection of craft, photography, and public design. Morman is trans and lives with multiple sclerosis. A settler on Treaty 7, he grew up along the Minnesota River in traditional Dakota territory. After emigrating to Saskatoon in the late 90s, he studied sociology at the University of Saskatchewan and worked in communications and administration with a variety of non-profit organizations. Now based in Lethbridge, he enjoys riding his red tricycle as well as falling off it. In 2016 Morman earned an M.F.A. from the University of Lethbridge, where he is currently a PhD Candidate in Cultural, Social, and Political Thought, and a sessional instructor in Sociology. Most recently, his work has considered the potential of lenticular images to represent temporality and change; solo exhibition Let’s Do the Time Warp Again was featured in the Art Gallery of Alberta’s RBC Gallery in 2021.

Justin Patterson (b. 1978, Rolling Hills, Alberta) is a Vancouver-based artist whose interdisciplinary approach includes sculpture and installation as well as sonics and image-based mediums. Part of his ongoing practice is a reflection on the overlapping of history and fragmentation of time. His artistic influences include Kurt Shwiters, Agnes Martin, and Mike Kelly, and his farm-youth in the Prairie landscape of Southern Alberta on treaty 7 and 4 territory.

The Articulations Art Lecture Series offers presentations from contemporary practicing artists and arts professionals. Local and international artists, curators, critics, art historians, theorists, and filmmakers share their practice and engage with the audience in open, critical discussion.
