The Immortal Regiment Online Photo Exhibit

The Immortal Regiment is an annual tribute to honour the generation that participated in the defeat of Nazi Germany as well as other conflicts. Marchers solemnly carry portraits of lost relatives to honour their sacrifices.

The event is very emotional characterized by the singing of traditional songs, the sharing of stories, and the shedding of tears in remembrance of lost loved ones.

The Trail... A Legacy of War Online Photo Exhibit

During the height of the Vietnam War, the United States Air Force conducted a secret war in Laos to attempt to destroy the communist supply lines commonly known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail. From 1964 to 1973, Laos was one of the most heavily bombed countries in history... More bombs were dropped on Laotian territory than over Germany and Japan in all of World War II.

It is estimated that up to 30% of these explosives did not detonate, and to this day, armed and active devices litter over 40% of the country. Tens of thousands of Lao have been killed or maimed by this unexploded ordinance (UXO), 40% of the victims being children.

This photo essay was created to illustrate the lives of the people occupying the former Ho Chi Minh Trail and their daily struggle to cope with the Legacy of War.

The Streets of Hanoi Online Photo Exhibit

Hanoi is a vibrant city that is still reconciling a tragic past while embracing a bright future. The streets of Old Hanoi are a dichotomy of Colonial French architecture serviced by quaint narrow roads that strain to accomodate the legions of scooters, trucks, and cars that service its ever expanding core.

RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 6:30 PM

In any style, cursive text, also known as handwriting, script, longhand, or running text, is the joining of the character symbols of language in a flowing manner, generally for the purpose of making writing faster and more efficient.

Ancient cultures developed systems of writing that have evolved and persisted into the 21st century. Featuring artifacts selected from the permanent collection, this exhibition traces the history of penmanship, never more compelling than in the digital age.

Fieldwork features the work of Arizona-based artist, farmer, and food activist Matthew Moore. Situated at the intersection of art and agriculture, Moore’s social practice engages issues related to environment, food, and sustainability as means to increase consciousness of our relationship to the land and food production. Offering a poignant lens on the loss of farmland to urban growth, Moore blends documentary tactics, land-based installation, and community engagement to reimagine commitment to place in a global context. Currently participating in the LAND Studio program facilitated by the Art Gallery of Guelph and Musagetes, Fieldworkextends Moore’s focus on the American southwest to explore local landscape transformation. Curated by Shauna McCabe, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Inspired by Inuk filmmaker Alethea Anarquq-Baril’s award-winning documentary, Angry Inuk, this exhibition is grounded in intergenerational art and activism that speaks to the central role of the seal and seal hunting within Inuit culture and society. Considered a critically important Indigenous right to Inuit communities, the practice has been affected by international protests that have failed to engage the Inuit themselves. Bringing together contemporary works by Alethea Anarquq-Baril, Katherine Takpannie, Couzyn van Heuvelen, and Tanya Tagaq, as well as works from the Art Gallery of Guelph’s permanent collection selected by Inuit youth, Getting Under Our Skin highlights the primacy of lived tradition and its transformation into visual culture. Curated by Andrew Hunter, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
