THE CUBE. Ongoing Queer Newfoundland Hockey League (QNHL). Curated by Craig Willms. Playfully and provocatively challenging the prevalence of homophobia and hyper-masculinity in team sports, Lucas Morneau’s exhibition proposes 14 fictional teams that reclaim, empower, and amplify LGBTQIA2S+ voices. With team names like the St. John’s Sissies, Bonavista Buggers, and Ferryland Fairies, Morneau subverts pejoratives used against the LGBTQIA2S+ community, paired with places historically associated with senior hockey league teams in Newfoundland and Labrador. CENTRAL GALLERY. Ongoing GLACIAL RESONANCE: Paul Walde. Curated by Charo Neville. Presenting the glacier as a central protagonist, this exhibition brings the stark reality of otherwise distant mountain ranges to the forefront. A solo exhibition of ambitious projects by Canadian artist Paul Walde, it shares the artist’s enduring concern about environmental crises, channelled through sound and video.
