Artists in Canada are actively making work in response to concerns about land, water, and energy.
Learn more about their powerful artwork in an engaging exhibition tour of Ground Signals led by co-curators Roxanne Charles and Jordan Strom.
From paintings, audio recordings, sculpture, and videos that engage with colonial histories to the legacies of extractive economies, the multisensory artwork in Ground Signals invites response. As you exchange stories for energy, travel back in time to Tahltan territory, or listen to spoken word poetry while contemplating a painting, you’re challenged to reconsider your relationship to the places you live, work, play, and recreate.
Strom and Charles will share behind-the-scenes information on the thirteen artists and artwork and draw out connections between the works. Both regular tour participants and first-time Gallery visitors are encouraged to ask questions and share their responses to the art. No need for an art degree—this casual and informal tour is welcome to all.
