In My Skin

Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina Public Library
April 1 – June 24, 2022 (Central Gallery)

Curated by Wendy Peart

Ella Cooper, Dayna Danger, Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Riisa Gundesen, Jaye Kovach, Shantel Miller, and Zoë Schneider.

Bodies are complex entities, both built and viewed from many scientific, social, and personal networks. In My Skin brings together artists who dare to self-determine what it means to live in their own bodies. Through diverse feminist perspectives, they resist dominant definitions of how one’s body “should” look, feel, move, and act. Consequently, they embrace the intricacies of what our bodies are and can be. These are acts of resistance and self-reclamation that are actionable calls to respect more fully, love more completely, and care more intentionally for the bodies we inhabit and, by extension, those of others.
