Sovereign Acts Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor

Oct
20

Date: Oct 20, 2018 - Jan 20, 2019

Location: 401 Riverside Drive West Windsor, Ontario N9A 7J1

Category: Community Events

The history of Indigenous Peoples performing cultural dances and practices for international and colonial audiences is an important part of Indigenous art, generally, and performance art, specifically. The Indigenous performers known as ‘Indians’ faced the conundrum of maintaining traditional cultural practices by performing them on stage while also having that performance fulfill the desires of a colonial imaginary. In Sovereign Acts, the artists contend with the legacy of colonial representations. Their work returns to the multi-leveled history of ‘Performing Indian’ to recuperate the erased and objectified performer as an ancestor, an artist, and an Indigenous subject. It also means there are Indigenous traditions of performance that feed contemporary art and form an alternative art history. The artists in Sovereign Acts are not just defining themselves from in/outside colonial histories but also from within ever-changing traditions of family, home, people, and territory. Performance is an act of cultural and political resistance as well as of remembrance and commemoration. It offers glimpses of a forgotten past and uses creative fiction as a force against colonial narratives of capture, savagery, loss, and disappearance. A truly Sovereign Act. Curated by Wanda Nanibush. Circulated by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.

The Living River Project: Art, Water and Possible Worlds Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor

Oct
20

Date: Oct 20, 2018 - Jan 20, 2019

Location: Art Gallery of Windsor 401 Riverside Drive West Windsor, Ontario N9A 7J1

Category: Community Events

In The Living River Project: Art, Water and Possible Worlds, co-curators Patrick Mahon and Stuart Reid build on previous iterations of the exhibition to consider the cultural, historical and environmental significance of water issues in the Windsor-Detroit corridor. The Detroit River, which connects Lake St. Clair with Lake Erie is one of the world’s busiest waterways and border crossing points and has the distinction of having dual heritage designation from Canada and America. The river’s shores embrace the largest metropolitan area on any international border. It is also one of the first International Wildlife Refuges, known for being a large habitat for many ecosystems and species. Historically, Indigenous peoples have been recorded on the shores from as early as 400 A.D. Settlement by Europeans happened around 1650 with trade, culture and industrialization spurred by the river and its resources. The Detroit River was also an integral part of the Underground Railway, a crossing point for slaves escaping to freedom. Drawing from the region’s history as well as the increasingly precarious ecology of this body of water, artists Nadine Bariteau, Elizabeth Chitty, Patricia Coates, Soheila Esfahani, Gautam Garoo, Joscelyn Gardner, Patrick Mahon + Dickson Bou with Mona Stonefish (with Windsor Grade 4&5 Students), Colin Miner, Chris Myhr, Troy Ouellette, Lee Rodney with Justin Langlois, Hamilton Perambulatory Unit and IN/TERMINUS Research Group, Quinn Smallboy, and Jennifer Willet come together to reflect on the nature of water while advocating for its historical preservation and environmental protection. A related creative project on display, entitled River of Names, involved school children from Marlborough Public School and West Gate Public School in Windsor working with Indigenous elder, Mona Stonefish, and artist Patrick Mahon. Co-curated by Patrick Mahon and Stuart Reid.

Three years ago, the AGW made a multi-year commitment to showcase the Gallery’s Collection to provide opportunity for sustained engagement in learning about art in Canada and to support visitor experience and student learning. We are thrilled to launch its next iteration. This exhibition continues to profile themes of Canadian Heritage and the Land and Portraiture and the Body, and celebrates the historical collections leading to the 20th century. This time we will enrich these topics with more diversity and feature new acquisitions, many of which expand the Gallery’s ongoing commitment to cultural diversity. For the student and teacher experience this exhibition is supported by AGW’s continued commitment to supporting the Ontario Provincial Curriculum in seven programs serving grades K-12. This exhibition will include many of your favorite works and those which have truly defined the Gallery’s collection - Prudence Heward, Emily Carr, members of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Enriched is the Gallery’s continuing commitment to Indigenous histories, especially in the Great Lakes basin, for example works by Bonnie Devine, Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig and Angus Trudeau. The AGW collection - it’s your resource to enjoy and share with family and friends, colleagues and peers. A special thank you is extended to our multi-year exhibition sponsors who include The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation, Windsor Mold Group, The Chandisherry Foundation, Mary and Bud Weingarden, Jennifer and Sean White and Teppermans.

Kenneth Saltmarche: Dedicated Visions Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor

Nov

Date: Nov 30, 2018 - May 12, 2019

Location: 401 Riverside Drive West Windsor, Ontario N9A 7J1

Category: Community Events

In celebrating 75 years of the Art Gallery of Windsor’s history, it is important to pay tribute to Kenneth Saltmarche. Over the course of a nearly forty-year career which focused on building a community presence for a public art gallery in Windsor, Saltmarche demonstrated a sustained commitment to a professional vision which informed the growth of the AGW and its collection. Kenneth Saltmarche: Dedicated Visions reveals that he also maintained a personal aesthetic vision evident in his active pursuit of a visual art practice. This exhibition presents a range of Saltmarche’s art which demonstrates his interest in exploring several art genres over the duration of his artistic practice. Landscape, still life, official portraits as well as informal portraits of family members and acquaintances were also subjects which Saltmarche rendered in oil, watercolour and ink mediums. His artistic choices were carefully considered and presented in an engaging range of stylistic approaches developed as a means for communicating an intimate expression of a particular moment. All exhibited works are drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of Windsor. Curated by Chris Finn.
