No Small Terror: Edward Burtynsky

July 22 to October 10, 2021
Please note that exhibition dates are dependent on Ontario’s Reopening Steps and are subject to change. 

Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Edward Burtynsky is one of Canada’s most internationally recognized artists. He is a photographer and filmmaker whose imagery is often compared to historical European landscape painting. His unconventional but quintessentially 21st century views of nature and industry have also been described as “exquisite pictures of ugliness.”

Quinn Smallboy: String Theory
 July 31, 2021 – September 26, 2021

The artist Quinn Smallboy uses string and rope to examine Indigenous cultural objects, identity, and worldview. For Smallboy, string functions as an aesthetic object and marker of negative space that prompts us to experience our surroundings in novel ways. Yet string also holds a close relationship to memory; it is a symbol or metaphor that helps us piece together abstract points in space and time that thread together the past.

A Harlem Nocturne: Deanna Bowen
September 3 – November 7, 2021

Deanna Bowen’s artistic practice concerns itself with histories of Black experience in Canada and the US. Her focus is the “dark matter” in our midst: figures and events that have remained below the threshold of visibility not because they are impossible to find but because their existence reveals a systematized racism difficult for the majority culture to acknowledge. Bowen reactivates historic material sourced fromoverlooked archives through a process of extraction, translation and enlargement, and then reinserts this material into public consciousness in a new form.
