(WINDSOR, ON) – The Art Gallery of Windsor (AGW) has announced the opening of its Winter-Spring exhibitions. A group of five local artists, Mary Celestino, Elio Del Col, Adèle Duck, Zeke Moores and Tony Mosna, present Local Matters, Suzy Lake addresses social issues in Performing An Archive, and the African Canadian experience is explored in Position As Desired.
The focus of the three ground-breaking exhibitions is on how artists experience and materialize the notion of home.
Local Matters is curated by Dr Catharine Mastin and features new AGW acquisitions never before shown, within the mediums of painting, printmaking, and sculpture.
Lake’s own personal ancestry is explored and questioned in Performing An Archive. She visited the working class Detroit locales where her family lived from the mid-1800s to the 1920s.
Position As Desired: Exploring African Canadian Identity/Photography has been curated from Toronto dentist Kenneth Montague’s private Wedge Collection. This exhibition, partially organized by the Royal Ontario Museum, presents a series of contemporary photographs examining the history, movement, and experiences of African Canadians.
