Exhibitions

Trans Passions

Jai Sallay-Carrington, 2023-24 Lormina Salter Fellow

This exhibition is inspired by the beautiful lives of transgender people across Canada and America. As trans rights continue to be under threat in America, this exhibition is a reminder of the individuals who are trying to live their lives in a society that continues to demonize them. The sculptures in this exhibition are based on the unique passions held by each of the trans people represented. This is to showcase that although being trans is an important aspect of one’s being, it is only one component of their complex identities. Trans Passions showcases trans joy, the strength of community and the fulfilling lives that trans people are living within the greater society.

This project was made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.  

EARTH and LIGHT: Divergence

Wayman Scott, 2023-24 EMBARC Fellow

“EARTH and LIGHT: Divergence” draws attention to often overlooked topics, such as neurodiversity and racial equity through the artist’s own perspective. This fresh and authentic take on these issues encourages viewers to engage with them in a meaningful way.

Loopholes

Audrey Lee Naiva, 2022-24 AmeriCorp Resident

“Loopholes” is a collection of textiles, ceramics, and collages by Americorps resident Audrey Lee Naiva. Loosely inspired by her mixed Chinese and Swiss heritage and the metaphorical space between woven cloth, Naiva crafts improvisational applique quilts and double-handled mugs: fun and functional work that celebrates the in-between
