Hamilton Now: Subject is the first of two exhibitions inspired by the deep roots of culture and creativity in Hamilton and the recent influx of so many more artists to the city. The exhibition features the work of eight local artists and takes up the key aspects of who we are and how we manifest ourselves in an increasingly fractured world.

Building on the popular appeal of the 2014 exhibition Painting Hamilton as a highly dynamic show that featured the breadth of practices of Hamilton emerging and established artists, Hamilton Now: Subject brings together works in a wide variety of media, including video, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media. As the individual artists address their own questions around identity, they reflect on contemporary ways of representing oneself and explore questions of autobiography. Psychological and spiritual perception, generational identity, gender, queer identities and race politics all come together for an absorbing and nuanced expression of the art scene in Hamilton today.

Artists include: Amber Müller St. Thomas & Nedda Baba, Becky Katz, David Trautrimas, John Haney, Kiera Boult, Lesley Loksi Chan, Leslie Sasaki, and Masoud Eskandari.

As a statement on the incredible number of artists working in Hamilton, including many who are newly arrived, the Hamilton Now exhibition is in two parts. The second phase, called Object, focuses mainly on sculptors. This large group exhibition offers fresh experiences of various material and conceptual approaches to the medium. Works include architectural explorations of place, hybridized clay sculptures, textile works and an interactive digital video project that incorporates a sculptural map of Hamilton.

Artists include Carmela Laganse, Christopher Reid Flock, Destiny Grimm, Donna Akrey, Hamilton Perambulatory Unit (HPU), Laura Marotta, Persons, Svava Thordis Juliusson, and Taien Ng-Chan.
