Allyson Mitchell, Brain Child 2008 (detail)Unpacking the Living Room
8 Sep 2018 – 10 Nov 2018
Living rooms are spaces we arrange and create around ourselves to support the comfort and wellbeing of family, to host friends and loved ones, to display precious and prized belongings, and for leisure and relaxation. But living rooms are private spaces packed with emotions and history, as well as social and political investments. The kind of living room we create can reveal our background, our values, our social position, and our aspirations. Even the privilege of having a living room speaks volumes when so many people live in precarious situations, are without shelter, or have been displaced from their homes and traditional lands.

Bridget Moser: Is this thing on?
3 Jun 2015 – 16 Aug 2015
Toronto-based performance and video artist Bridget Moser employs strategies associated with experimental theatre, performance art, modern dance, and prop comedy. Moser writes and acts out fragmented texts, combining language with everyday materials, which are used as props, and audio excerpts pulled from popular culture.

Rubbish, Rubbish
8 Oct 2011 – 20 Nov 2011
The exhibition’s title struck its curator when he observed stacked cardboard boxes on a curb, each labelled Rubbish. First finding it humorously coincidental, Hancherow then realized that the deliberate arrangement of the stacked boxes had given them significance proportional to the worthlessness of their contents. In a similar fashion, each artist in this exhibition transforms the viewers’ perception of cardboard boxes as merely utilitarian and disposable.

Stitch by Aimée Brown
10 Oct 2009 – 15 Dec 2009
Stitch is a work of contemporary art assembled from MSVU Art Gallery’s History as a publisher. The artist has tediously reconstructed catalogues to form scrolls, spirals and bricks that morph into an organic form that is in a continuous struggle with gravity.
Aimee Brown, Stitch
