The Eternity Code: Archaeology, Textiles and Preservation.
How have textiles – among the most fragile and vulnerable artifacts – survived over centuries? Learn about the materials and techniques found in archaeological textiles and the conditions that have allowed for their survival through this exhibition of Peruvian and Coptic textiles from the Textile Museum of Canada collection. Woven cloth, basketry, cordage and matting have been integral to every culture and every historical moment – Paleolithic to contemporary – providing direct evidence of social, political, and economic conditions over time and space. The Eternity Code explores early textile technologies and their roles in symbolic communication through ciphers, signs and patterns as well as their social functions in ceremony, ritual and everyday life.

Charles Edenshaw.
Organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery. The exhibition is made possible with support from The Audain Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Government of Canada through the Museums Assistance Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage, and Mr. David Aisenstat.
Haida artist Charles Edenshaw (1839–1920) is now recognized as one of the most innovative artists working on the West Coast at the turn of the 20th century. This exhibition offers a complete overview of Edenshaw's work, presenting a wide range of the objects that he created during his lifetime, from traditional objects that he made for family members to elaborately carved model poles, platters, and other objects produced for trade with Europeans.
Examining his remarkable aesthetic achievements, the exhibition focuses on four predominant themes: his advancement of traditional formline design; his ability to animate Haida stories in his carving; his interest in new materials and visual ideas that led to innovative cultural hybrids; and, finally, his deep-seated belief in Haida traditions, which gave him the agility and fortitude to thrive as a Haida artist during oppressive colonial rule. With objects borrowed from public and private collections from across North America, this touring exhibition is the most comprehensive on the artist to date.

Building Waterloo Region: A Festival of Architecture in Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo. Curated by Rick Haldenby and Esther E. Shipman. Industry is the foundation of the cities of Waterloo Region. Mills became catalysts for the growth of the communities and the urban landscapes of the towns were dominated by the huge masses and relentless facades of the factories. This is the most important architectural tradition of the region. The factories were the monuments. Ex Industria traces the origins and development of these industrial landscapes and their influence on the culture of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo.

Each of these artists draws upon their personal experiences to create work responding to the theme.

The Art of Private Jukes. While overseas during the Great War, many soldiers documented their experiences in journals, letters home and in drawings. Private Jukes was one such young man. During his time of service he created hundreds of drawings, watercolours and pen and ink sketches depicting not only battle scenes and their aftermath but also moments of pastoral beauty that could still be found in the French countryside.

Autumn Colours: Selections from the Gallery's Collection. Of all the visual elements of art, colour has the most immediate impact on us. Our reaction to it is complex, and has been a subject of considerable study by artists and psychologists. This autumn, we showcase the artists' use of a single colour to create that big impact.
