Marc Courtemanche, Axe 2008Double Take
21 May 2016 – 19 Aug 2016
A routine glance at a work of art sometimes leads to a double take—a delayed reaction to a surprising detail after the initial failure to notice anything unusual. Selected from the permanent collection, the works in Double Take either are ‘assisted readymades’ (modified found objects) or, as ‘replicas,’ they resemble assisted readymades. The second or third glance generally prompts second thoughts.

The Department of Prints and Drawings
11 Jun 2016 – 19 Aug 2016
How can a small university art gallery, itself a department, oversee a “Department of Prints and Drawings”? The provocative title of this exhibition is meant to prompt skepticism about the medium-based categories that still define large public collections, such as those at the National Gallery of Canada.

Walking With Our SistersWalking With Our Sisters
14 Jan 2017 – 1 Feb 2017
{I}Walking With Our Sisters{/I} is an art memorial that honours missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirited people through ceremony, community and reflection. It presents more than 1800 pairs of moccasin tops (vamps) made by contributing artists. The moccasins are unfinished, symbolizing over 1181 sisters, mothers, aunties, daughters, cousins, grandmothers, wives and partners whose lives were tragically cut short over the last thirty years. Many have vanished without a trace, and their cases have often been inadequately investigated, neglected or ignored.
