This profusion of experience is celebrated through the exhibition “Swell”.

Studio members Alison Bigg, Markus Drassl, Laura Feeleus, Karina Kalvaitis, Lindsay Katsitsakatste Delaronde, Kim Lesley, Connie Michele Morey, Regan Rasmussen, Dave Riedstra and Jenn Wilson present works in sound, photography, sculpture, textiles, painting, drawing and mixed media works addressing notions of growth, rhythm, abundance, and that which is most excellent, very well, indeed swell.

blue crush: EXHIBITION OPENING

7-10PM - AUG 24
THE FIFTY FIFTY - 2516 DOUGLAS STREET
thefiftyfifty.net | Facebook Event

Kerri Flannigan: Blue Crush

Drawing on both historical perspectives and personal stories, Blue Crush considers the ways that we inherit, inhabit, and embody our differing lived experiences, and how these experiences inform our relationship to swimming.

By positioning sites such as pools and beaches as both places of recreation, and as colonized and contested spaces, swimming and beach culture are explored through the intimacy of personal narratives within the larger context of social and political realities. From the history of the breast stroke to All Bodies Swim's, from civil rights wade-in's to coming-of-age experiences in Christianwaterparks, Blue Crush is an intersectional portrait of swim culture.

We want to acknowledge that this work is happening on Lekwungen, W̱SÁNEC, T’Souke and Scia’new Territories - and that histories of settlement, colonization and resistance, inform our movements and navigations of swimming on this land

MADRONA GALLERY - 606 VIEW STREET
madronagallery.com | Facebook page

Madrona Gallery is pleased to present KIN, a group exhibition of works by contemporary Canadian female artists. The show is presented as a part of our annual Colours of Summer exhibition and in conjunction with Integrate Arts Festival 2018. Included are works by artists Tamara Bond, Samantha Dickie, Megan Dietrich, Meghan Hildebrand, Morgana Wallace, Caitlin McDonagh, Nicotye Samayualie, Ningiukulu Teevee, and Diana Thorneycroft. Across their respective media, these nine artists engage with themes of craft, narrative, gender, and sexuality, each with a critical awareness of the legacy forged by female contemporary artists before them. From Diana Thorneycroft’s photographic homage to Cindy Sherman, to Megan Dietrich’s fluid abstracts in the style of Helen Frankenthaler and Ningiukulu Teevee’s depictions of women in folklore and contemporary Inuit culture, each of these artists engages with the conversation of gender in fine art from a unique perspective. We hope you will join us for our annual Integrate Showcase, and experience the work of these artists firsthand.
