Underpinnings: Anna Leonowens Gallery

Shaai/Ink” – a short video that I created with Smriti Mehra will be showing at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia between 21 November – 1 December 2017.

Underpinnings: 130 Years of NSCAD
NSCAD Biennial Alumni Exhibition
Curated by Tori Fleming

Anna Leonowens Gallery, 1891 Granville St, Halifax, Nova Scotia. B3J 3J6

 
This year marks 130 years since Anna Leonowens first opened the Victoria School of Art in 1887. Since then, NSCAD has maintained its reputation as one the most influential art schools under many names, locations and presidents. NSCAD has provided the educational underpinnings for the studio practice of numerous significant Canadian artists, cultural workers, and creative thinkers.

For the 2017 Alumni Biennial, the NSCAD Alumni Association invited former students to reflect on the core values and pedagogy that have created the legacy for which NSCAD is known. Coordinated by NSCAD alumna Tori Fleming, this large, salon-style exhibition includes work by more than 100 alumni artists and designers.

Public Interrogation: Outside the White Cube

12273725_733303763471259_7084960856748217954_o

Happy to have my work included in Public Interrogation: Outside the White Cube, curated by Sherwin Altarez Mapanoo and The Multiple Exposure Project.

This alternative, traveling, curatorial project features image-based works across different disciplines and media by emerging artists whose work discuss the notion of the “public” and its complexities. The “public” is a multi-layered concept defined differently depending on how the term is used and framed. It is a notion devoid of singularity and is, grammatically speaking, a terrain of contradictions.
