Art Gallery of Windsor

Local Matters: Mary Celestino, Elio Del Col, Adèle Duck, Zeke Moores and Tony Mosna – This group-artist exhibition showcases work by five Windsor artists with sustained commitment to making art in Windsor. The exhibition will feature sculptures, prints, and paintings. The exhibition will address the challenges involved in balancing the reality of earning a living and making art that each artist has experienced while sustaining an art practice in Windsor.
Position As Desired: Exploring African Canadian Identity / Photographs from the Wedge Collection – The first major exhibition to examine the history, movement and experiences of African Canadians through contemporary photography. This touring exhibition was co-organized with the Royal Ontario Museum (Toronto) where it first opened in 2010. Conceived and organized by Windsor-born art collector Kenneth Montague, the exhibition presents a wide variety of photographic works from his personal archive, ranging from rare vintage portraits of the first African immigrants to Canada to contemporary works by established artists.
Suzy Lake: Performing an Archive – She visited the locations where her family lived, focusing on a family history period from the mid-nineteenth century to the 1920s. The works show the artist photographing these locations and surroundings, often decrepit but not entirely abandoned. As she emphasized, it goes “beyond the revitalization efforts in the Detroit business core; the garbage and street litter in working class neighbourhoods are gone, indicative of hope and the critical role of community effort in development and urban planning.”
