Sneak Peek Virtual Discussion – Power Play: Contemporary Art in Hockey
Sneak Peek Virtual Discussion
Power Play: Contemporary Art in Hockey
Thursday, February 3 at 7 p.m. ET
Join Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) in a sneak peak conversation about Power Play: Hockey in Contemporary Art with guest curator Jaclyn Meloche and featuring artists Didier Morelli, Hazel Meyer and Laura Millard. Inspired by the idea that hockey is much more diverse than the popular stereotypes have led Canadian society to believe, this exhibition questions the relationship between hockey and the Canadian identity by making the invisible bodies in the sport visible.
The artists will explain their individual practices and will discuss the ways their work is connected to hockey and identity. We will look at sculpture, performance, photography, video and installation.
This program will be facilitated through Microsoft Teams. Registration is required.
Power Play: Hockey in Contemporary Art exhibition
Virtual 360 to launch mid-Feb.
Inspired by the idea that hockey is much more diverse than the popular stereotypes have led Canadian society to believe, this exhibition questions the relationship between hockey and the Canadian identity by making the invisible bodies in the sport visible. Through 45 works of art in diverse media by 13 artists and a selection of archival objects from the Hockey Hall of Fame, timely conversations will be explored surrounding nationalism, gender and racial equity, physical and mental health, and the value of self-esteem.
