Sep 29 - Oct 22

Opening reception September 29, 2016 7-9 pm
Glen P. Sutherland Gallery, 2021 Victoria Avenue, Brandon, MB
Exhibition continues September 30- October 22 , 2016

Curated by Sigrid Dahle, featuring work by Marcel Dzama, Seema Goel, Rachael Kroeker, Jeannie Mah, Monica Mercedes Martinez, and Brendan Tang. This group exhibition includes artists who consciously use ceramic history, material properties and studio and/or commercial production processes to playfully and incisively explore, resist and/or perform unmoored contemporary identities. How are ever-evolving, cross-generational im/migrant experiences, colonial narratives and hybridized identities – what we customarily call ‘globalization’ – enacted in and through the vibrant discourse that is 21st century ceramics? What is it about this medium that renders it so amenable to supporting these timely and compelling investigations? Explore these questions and more when Play, Precarity and Survival opens at a new venue this September.
