Celebrate three new exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Guelph’s spring season launch on Thursday, May 10 at 7 pm: Matthew Moore: Fieldwork, Getting Under Our Skin, and Andrew Buszchak: Counterproductive Work Behaviour. Free admission; all welcome.

Matthew Moore: Fieldwork
May 10 – August 26, 2018

Fieldwork features the work of Arizona-based artist, farmer, and food activist Matthew Moore. Situated at the intersection of art and agriculture, Moore’s social practice engages issues related to environment, food, and sustainability as means to increase consciousness of our relationship to the land and food production. Offering a poignant lens on the loss of farmland to urban growth, Moore blends documentary tactics, land-based installation, and community engagement to reimagine commitment to place in a global context. Currently participating in the LAND Studio program facilitated by the Art Gallery of Guelph and Musagetes, Fieldwork extends Moore’s focus on the American southwest to explore local landscape transformation. Curated by Shauna McCabe, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts. read more >

Getting Under Our Skin
May 10 – September 5, 2018

Inspired by Inuk filmmaker Alethea Anarquq-Baril’s award-winning documentary, Angry Inuk, this exhibition is grounded in intergenerational art and activism that speaks to the central role of the seal and seal hunting within Inuit culture and society. Considered a critically important Indigenous right to Inuit communities, the practice has been affected by international protests that have failed to engage the Inuit themselves. Bringing together contemporary works by Alethea Anarquq-Baril, Katherine Takpannie, Couzyn van Heuvelen, and Tanya Tagaq, as well as works from the Art Gallery of Guelph’s permanent collection selected by Inuit youth, Getting Under Our Skin highlights the primacy of lived tradition and its transformation into visual culture. Curated by Andrew Hunter, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts. read more >

Andrew Buszchak: Counterproductive Work Behaviour
May 10 – September 5, 2018

Andrew Buszchak makes sculpture using carbon steel, lumber, and other materials common to the construction trades. Drawing inspiration from experiences as both a general labourer and journeyman welder, he is particularly interested in materials and their associated joining methods. With this body of work, Buszchak looks to draw attention to the implicit hierarchy between “parent” material and the method for fastening – often taken for granted as a means to an end. The exhibition represents the culmination of two years of focused work in the University of Guelph’s Masters in Fine Art program and is presented in conjunction with the School of Fine Art and Music (SOFAM). read more >
