Opening Reception: Saturday, May 19, from 2 pm to 4 pm
Weare proud to present to the public our newest exhibition Alluring Things, realized in collaboration with Guest Curator, Gentiane Bélanger. This exhibition examines the role played by material culture in our comprehension of nature. For the artists presented here, ecological responsibility involves a respect for objects, an attraction to their materiality, and recognition of their influence on our actions. Whimsical rather than moralizing, the Canadian artists of this exhibition, Bill Burns, T&T, BGL, and Daniel Corbeil take well-trodden material paths to prompt alternate perspectives on nature. The works on display draw materialism out of its usual alienating connotation to turn it into a relational vector between the natural element and the production of cultural objects.
