Brendan Fernandes: Lost Bodies
Delinda Collier, Kevin D. Dumouchelle, Amanda Gilvin, Amanda Jane Graham, Erica P. Jones and Nat Trotman

Lost Bodies.jpgspacer.gifStarting with the body as a place of knowing, Fernandes offers multiple points of connection that draw upon traditional African textiles, costume and masks, gestures of Western ballet, and elegant, poetic dance choreographies within the museum vault. With this fresh approach to re-presenting African artifacts, he invokes a long-absent live-ness and reconsiders selections from two major collections in a set of new video, print and spatial intercessions. Fernandes’ montage of classical dance and the collected object is concentrated around precise body language that raises questions about the visual and discursive habits that shape understandings of African art within Western museums. Essays by specialists in art performance, dance history and African art explore the implications of Fernandes’ intervention with two of Canada’s most distinctive collections of African art: The Justin and Elisabeth Lang Collection of African Art at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the collection of the Textile Museum of Canada. Brendan Fernandes is a Brooklyn-based Canadian artist of Kenyan and Indian descent. His work has been widely exhibited most notably at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Art and Design New York, National Gallery of Canada, Art in General, MASS MoCA, Andy Warhol Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Sculpture Center, Deutsche Guggenheim and Stedelijk Museum. Fernandes has participated in numerous residency programs including The Canada Council for the Arts International Residency in Trinidad and Tobago and The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Work Space. He is a 2014 recipient of a Robert Rauschenberg Residency Fellowship and in 2016 he will be artist in residence at Northwestern University in the Department of Dance Studies.

The Artist Herself: Self-Portraits by Canadian Historical Women Artists

Alicia Boutilier and Tobi Bruce

artistherself.jpgspacer.gifA stunningly illustrated look at the ways in which women artists have given profound expression to their identities from colonial times to 1970. From Pauline Johnson’s performance costumes representing her dual Mohawk and Euro-Canadian identity to Emily Carr’s painting of herself from the back at her easel, from Hannah Maynard’s playful photographs of her multiple selves to Pitseolak Ashoona’s sly comment on her participation in the Inuit art market, this publication brings to light a rich but unexplored aspect of women’s lives in Canadian society. Drawing upon our fascination with self-portraits, The Artist Herself expands the genre’s definition by moving beyond the human face to propose other forms of self-representation, from both settler and Indigenous perspectives. The result is a thought-provoking selection of works by 42 women artists in a range of media, including paintings, textiles, photographs and film.

Akram Zaatari: All Is Well

Vicky Moufawad-Paul and Judith Rodenbeck

AkramZaatari.jpgspacerAkram Zaatari has emerged as one of the most prominent commentators on photography in the Middle East. Through film, video and photography, he explores the precarious status of archives in times of war, as well as their discursive limits as narrators of Lebanon’s history. His investigations make us witnesses to powerful accounts of a period marked by the violence and disorientation of the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990). Zaatari’s works provide a glimpse of what has been concealed from view and hidden inside bodies, and exhumes what has been buried in the earth: letters written in code passed through censors, tiny letters swallowed and delivered after defecation, instantaneous chats between lovers presented as a letter, and reassuring letters enclosed within mortar casings. Published with Carleton University Art Gallery.

The Adoration of the Shepherds by El Greco

David McTavish

ELGreco.gifspacer.gifA scholar of European art brings new understanding to this Greco-Italian masterpiece. In 1991 Queen's University's Agnes Etherington Art Centre acquired a remarkable small Adoration of the Shepherds painting by El Greco from donors Alfred and Isabel Bader.. Using investigative methods that include radiography and infared refelectography, the author maps out the work’s position in relation to the artist’s early production but also to Cretan art, Renaissance prints and works by Titian, whose ability to convey dramatic light and dynamic movement left an indelible mark on his young Greek follower.

solloway.jpgspacer.gifOver the second half of the twentieth century, Canadian philanthropist Ruth Soloway quietly built an astounding collection of paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture spanning the 1840s to the 1980s. From naturalistic landscapes of the nineteenth century to the bold views of Emily Carr and David Milne; from avant-garde abstractions by Paul-Émile Borduas and Jean-Paul Riopelle to figurative paintings by Alex Colville and Jean Paul Lemieux, from William Kurelek’s Prairie children to Michael Snow’s Walking Woman, the collection reveals a deep passion and keen eye for Canadian art. .

A Vital Force: The Canadian Group of Painters
Alicia Boutilier, Anna Hudson, Heather Home and Linda Jansma

vitaleforceweb.jpgspacer.gifFounded in 1933 in reaction to the established view of the Group of Seven as the “national art of Canada”, this diverse group of progressive young artists was the first to aspire to cross-Canada representation of modernist art. Yet the Canadian Group of Painters (CGP) has not entered popular lexicon as did its famous predecessor. Artists include Jack Bush, Emily Carr, Paraskeva Clark, Lawren S. Harris, E. J. Hughes, Jack Humphrey, Prudence Heward, Jock Macdonald, David Milne, Lilias Torrance Newton, Goodridge Roberts and Marian Dale Scott.

Une force vive : le Groupe des Peintres canadiens

Alicia Boutilier, Anna Hudson, Heather Home et Linda Jansma
uneforcevive.gifspacer.gifDès le début des années trente, le Groupe des Sept est devenu « l’école nationale » du Canada, dictant l’image de l’art canadien à l’étranger. Les inquiétudes relatives à l’exclusion des artistes plus jeunes et progressistes ont conduit à la formation du Groupe des Peintres canadiens en 1933. Parmi les membres du nouveau groupe, on retrouvait la plupart des artistes progressistes anglophones de l’époque, tels que Jack Bush, Emily Carr, Paraskeva Clark, E. J. Hughes, Prudence Heward, Jock Macdonald, Pegi Nicol MacLeod, David Milne, Goodridge Roberts et Marian Dale Scott. En français.

Howie Tsui: Friendly Fire

Jan Allen, Steven Loft and Paul Robertson

Tsui.gifspacer.gifHowie Tsui’s extraordinary Friendly Fire exhibition blends the history of medicine with a haunting, unruly commemoration of the War of 1812 in this collaborative presentation produced with the Museum of Health Care at Kingston. Three essays explore Tsui’s practice and the aspects of the War illuminated by his installations, including the psychological conditions of war, factitious diseases and self-injury, counter-narratives of conflict, ethno-political strife, medical theories and practices of the period, the uneasy relations between the British and their aboriginal allies, and carnivalesque representations of war in popular culture.

Annie Pootoogook: Kinngait Compositions

Jan Allen

pootoogook.gifspacer.gifWith drawings spanning 2001 to 2006, this publication focuses on Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut, the Arctic community that has been the focus of Annie Pootoogook's practice. While her drawings offer an unflinching look at life in a community in transition, they also bears witness to the bonds among its people. In the context of the broad popular appeal of Inuit graphics, these works are distinguished by a disconcerting emotional reserve. The artist achieves a cool observational quality that pushes at the edges of comedy or hysteria, a condition of charged understatement that has drawn intense critical interest to her work. Annie Pootoogook is the granddaughter of the renowned graphic artist Pitseolak Ashoona and daughter of artist Napachie Pootoogook. Annie Pootoogook received the prestigious Sobey Art Award in 2006. Her drawings have been exhibited at the Power Plant (Toronto) and the Museum of theAmerican Indian (New York).

Lost and Found: Wright of Derby's View of Gibraltar
John Bonehill, Janet M. Brooke, Barbara Klempan & David de Witt
lostfound.gifspacer.gifIn 1785, the British painter Joseph Wright of Derby (1734–1797) exhibited a large painting representing his country’s defense of the Rock of Gibraltar against Spanish attack in 1782. A specialist in dramatic light effects, Wright hoped his great battle picture would cap his career, and although it was purchased for a substantial sum at the time, it subsequently slipped from view and was considered lost by specialists in the field. In 2001, the Art Centre acquired a painting representing the same subject which has since been the subject of debate: was this picture, now in poor condition, a copy of Wright’s lost painting, a work by one of his contemporaries, or in fact Wright’s missing masterpiece?
