Critical Mass

September 13, 2018 – January 6, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 7 pm

Artists: Shellicka Anglin, Black Artists Union, Noah Brown, Sean George, Charmaine Lurch, Jamilah Malika, Kosisochukwu Nnebe, Camille Turner, Jan Wade, and Syrus Marcus Ware

Commentators: Alyssa Fearon, Reighen Grineage, Felicia Mings, and Charmaine Nelson

Emerging from the research that has informed the podcast series Black Lives Rooted initiated by the Art Gallery of Guelph in early 2018, Critical Mass features the work of established and emerging Black artists from across Canada. Reflecting the complexity and diversity of Blackness in a transnational context, the exhibition speaks to the geography of politics and identity at national and civic levels, addressing the historic invisibility and erasure of the experience of Black history in Canada as well as our own region.

1745

September 13 – December 16, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 7 pm

Complementing the exhibition Critical Mass, 1745 is a new short video installation by Glasgow-based artists, writers, and actors Morayo and Moyo Akandé – London-born daughters of Nigerian immigrants. Developed in collaboration with filmmaker Gordon Napier, the film illuminates the hidden history of slavery in Scotland, referring to the tumultuous year of the Jacobite rising of 1745 to recount the story of two Nigerian-born sisters who were enslaved in the Caribbean and brought to Scotland. In this work, two sisters try to retake their freedom in a foreign and hostile land, attempting to elude their master in the perilous Scottish Highlands – the landscape that has become essential to the Scottish identity. Documenting the traumatic flight of the sisters through a quintessentially rugged Scottish environment, the film offers a harsh reminder of the isolation and vulnerability of Black bodies in a colonial terrain.

The Akandé sisters have grounded their research in fugitive slave records, developing a work that challenges dominant national narratives. Like the focus on the Underground Railroad that overshadows the practice of slavery in Canada, Glasgow identifies with a powerful Abolitionist history that obscures the foundations of the city’s economy in the slave trade. St. Lucian scholar Dr. Marenka Thompson-Odlum, whose ongoing research engages the deep history and substantial traces of Glasgow’s legacy of slavery, co-curates this presentation. The presentation of 1745 in Guelph recognizes the weight of Black history as well as the dominant presence of Scottish immigration in shaping the cities and towns in the region.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Guelph, the exhibition is curated by Andrew Hunter and Dr. Marenka Thompson-Odlum with the support of the Canada Council and Canada Council of the Arts. 1745 is presented in collaboration with University of Guelph Scottish Studies and the Guelph Black Heritage Society.

epistemologies of the moon

September 13 – December 16, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 7 pm

Artists: Chief Lady Bird, Katherine Boyer, Gillian Dykeman, Maggie Groat, Rekha Lauren Ramachandran, Zoë Schneider, and Yerba Mala Collective

Awarded the 6th annual Middlebrook Prize for Young Canadian Curators, Lauren Fournier’s exhibition epistemologies of the moon engages with the symbolism and imagery of the moon as a historically feminine and, more recently, feminist symbol, opening it up to new meanings and valences in the transnational 21st century. The exhibition emerges from Fournier’s curatorial research around land and place, exploring the dynamics of settler-colonialism and decolonization through mythology, mysticism, ritual, and spirituality. The project includes work by emerging and mid-career artists whose practices are indebted to ideas around the politics, aesthetics, and ethics of feminism today.
