Laura St.Pierre: Museum of Future History/Le Musée de l’histoire à venir
March 24 to June 2/21 mars au 2 juin
Rites of Future History/Les rites de l’histoire à venir Performance and Reception: Saturday, June 2, 1:00 pm, Sherwood Gallery
Les rites de l’histoire à venir Performance et Réception: samedi 2 juin, 13H00

Laura St.Pierre’s Museum of Future History/Le Musée de l’histoire à venir documents the flora of Saskatchewan’s boreal forests. Recycled glass jars containing pale, ghostlike plant specimens are arranged in vitrines and documented with luminous large-format photographs. In the makeshift museum, we catch the increasingly familiar scent of the summer forest fires that both sustain and threaten the forest’s delicate ecosystem. Surreal and elegiac, St.Pierre’s installation casts us into a speculative future both predictable and unthinkable. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator. Sherwood Gallery.

Le Musée de l’histoire à venir de Laura St.Pierre documente la flore des forêts boréales de la Saskatchewan. Des pots en verre recyclé contenant des spécimens de plantes pâles et fantomatiques sont disposés dans des vitrines et ensuite documentés par de lumineuses photographies en grand format. Dans ce musée de fortune, nous humons l’odeur qui nous est de plus en plus familière des feux de forêt lesquels maintiennent et menacent l’écosystème fragile de la forêt. Surréaliste et élégiaque, l’installation de St.Pierre nous plonge dans un avenir spéculatif, à la fois prévisible et indicible. Sous le commissariat de Blair Fornwald, Commissaire-adjointe. Sherwood Gallery.


Diyan Achjadi and Brendan Lee Satish Tang: Surface Handling
April 6 to May 19
Artist Talk (ASL Interpreted) and Reception: Friday, April 6, 6:00 pm

Vancouver-based artists Diyan Achjadi and Brendan Lee Satish Tang both treat the surfaces of their artworks with immense care, using the decorative treatment of their work to explore the traditions of their craft as well as the histories of their mixed cultural heritages. Achjadi and Tang’s work combines elements and imagery of historic Asian craft and contemporary material culture to examine how mythologies, cultural norms, and family lore are visually transmitted and culturally translated through time. With an appreciation for traditional media – Tang is a ceramicist and Achjadi is a printmaker – both artists commit to the labour and processes dictating the material handling of their respective crafts. As such, their work remains deeply reverent of the past while providing relevant reflections on current cultural, technological, and environmental issues. Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of Education and Community Outreach. Central Gallery and Mediatheque


Kathryn Ricketts: Anthropology of the Discard
May 1 to 31, Creation Cube, Regina Public Library, George Bothwell Branch, 2965 Gordon Road, Regina SK

Fascinated by the walls of hanging bags at Value Village, Regina based artist and educator Dr. Kathryn Ricketts has collected many bulging bags, using the objects contained within to launch compelling new narratives. Her presentation illuminates the agency of objects as triggers for performative storytelling. Visitors are invited to participate in this ongoing project by designing new narratives and new bags. Funded by the Emergent Cluster Research Group Identity/ Living Heritage/Communities of the University of Regina.


When Raven Became Spider
Joi T. Arcand, Sonny Assu, Shaun Beyale, Julianne Herney, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, and Jeffrey Veregge
May 18 to August 20

Taking its title from a body of work by Sonny Assu, depicting Spiderman in a traditional Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw style, When Raven Became Spider examines supernatural characters in Indigenous stories and contemporary comic books. These artists and storytellers depict Indigenous super-beings using popular comic book imagery, blurring the line between oral and graphic storytelling. Can their characters, in their new forms, still transmit old-world oratory tales, teaching us something about the frail human condition? Curated by Leena Minifie. Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, 9839 – 103 Avenue, Grande Prairie, Alberta.
