Sans façon: Jasmine from Grasse

October 31, 2016 - January 22, 2017

Our relationship to place is a strange one: why is it that a feeling or memory about a particular place or time can be more vivid than others?

Caitlin Thompson: Dandy Lines

July 25 - October 23, 2016

Dandy Lines is an exhibition of cosmic country embroidery that references Western fashion through the cyclical, transformative theories of craftwork and animation. It revisits the histories of the decorative and brings to the surface tensions between labour and identity, the body and the psyche.

Kyle Beal: A Chicken in Every Pot or How to Cook Your Own Goose

April 11 - July 17, 2016

‘A Chicken in Every Pot or How to Cook Your Own Goose’ takes a critical yet humorous look at some of Calgary’s local histories and contemporary development in and around the neighbourhoods of Inglewood, Ramsay, and the Stampede Park. Utilizing the structure and aesthetics of a midway carnival game to both relate to and comment on a century of immigration to the city, economic growth, changing social mores, and contemporary values, ‘A Chicken in Every Pot or How to Cook Your Own Goose’ asks if you can’t beat the house, can you really build your own?

Jesse Stilwell: Chromaphoria

January 11 - April 3, 2016

Chromaphoria is an installation that investigates the effects of coloured light on interior space and visual perception. The illusory quality of additive colour mixing is the core concept behind this work: the use of various artificial light sources and light-reflecting surfaces produce a euphoric experience of constantly changing conditions of light and colour.
