Léuli Eshrāghi and Jessica Karuhanga – Projections
Dunlop Art Gallery (Central Library), Regina Public Library
September 25, 2021 – January 7, 2022
Curated by Gary Varro, Guest Curator

In this exhibition, projections, as a conceptual framework, addresses several meanings of the word and its relationship to queerness, perceptions (specifically with regard to sexuality, race, and gender), and possibility as it relates to Indigenous, Black, and Queer futurisms. In creating a space that physically references film theatres and voyeuristic contexts, a relationship is established for the viewer to watch and observe, consider, anticipate, and to dwell in fantastication of the scenarios being projected. Each projection occupies its own alcove to further embellish ideas around these contexts as well as personal narratives, individuality, and criticality with regard to territory, ownership, and the physical and cultural occupation of space and land. Freedom, defiance, empowerment, presence, and self-fulfillment/self-actualization are key aspects of the work of these two artists.

Alana Bartol – Processes of Remediation
Dunlop Art Gallery (Sherwood Village Branch)
October 9, 2021 – January 9, 2022
Curated by Tomas Jonsson

This exhibition draws on Bartol’s work with dowsing and the history of dowsing in connection to mining/resource extraction. Specifically, Bartol researched Martine de Bertereau, one of the first (recognized) female mineralogists and mining engineers in 17th century France who traveled Europe in search of mineral deposits utilizing specialized divining instruments and other techniques including botany. Martine de Bertereau was accused of witchcraft and died in France while in prison. The story of de Bertereau is a complex one that points to the violence of resource extraction and the development of capitalism that she both participated in and was killed by. In her artwork, Bartol uses dowsing to ask audiences to reconsider consumption-driven relationships to the earth and what are known as ‘natural resources’.
