CENTRAL GALLERY Opening Sep 23BLACK DRONES IN THE HIVE: Deanna Bowen. Curated by Crystal Mowry. For more than 20 years, Deanna Bowen’s practice has evolved from its roots in experimental documentary video into a complex mapping of power as seen in public and private archives. Research and exhibitions are rarely mutually exclusive modes for Bowen, in part because her subjects reveal new perspectives over time. Whether it is through strategies of re-enactment or dense constellations of archival material, Bowen’s work traces her familial history within a broader narrative of Black survival in Canada and the United States.
Opening Sep 16TOB TOB KIN: Paula Ducharme. Curated by Craig Willms. Ducharme creates abstract wall hangings that incorporate traditions and new approaches drawn from her Indigenous ancestry. The exhibition explores the reconnection and cultural evolution of her identity as a Birdtail Sioux First Nations and settler artist. Generously sponsored by Wilson M. Beck Insurance Services Inc.
