Mary Anne Barkhouse: Le Rêve aux Loups.
Guest curator: Jennifer Rudder.

In her first solo exhibition in Toronto, Mary Anne Barkhouse invokes the animal inhabitants of the land in artworks that reveal the transitory nature of empire, highlighting both the triumphs and betrayals that delineate history north of the 49th parallel. Comprising a series of new and recent sculptures and photocollages, Le Rêve aux Loups reflects on our skewed experience of nature as a resource for human needs, rather than an ecosystem with its own intrinsic value.

Deeply engaged with environmental and Indigenous issues, Barkhouse's artistic practice foregrounds a visual iconography where animals play a central role. She situates her work between the two worlds of the human and the natural, employing the beaver, owl, wolf and coyote as symbols of the ability to adapt and persist, regenerate and repair throughout endless incursions into their environs.

Descended from a family of traditional Northwest Coast Kwakiutl carvers, Barkhouse has always worked within a contemporary sculpture / installation style. Her elegant yet witty works frequently employ popular culture references, while her accomplished handling of traditional sculptural materials such as wood, bronze, porcelain and glass, bring both a refined sensibility and serious tone to her often playful installations. These sophisticated artworks offer a quiet beauty while revealing the difficult struggle over territory that continues amongst humans, animals and the environment.

Steve Driscoll & Finn O'Hara: Size Matters.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
Primary Exhibition for Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
Size Matters brings together the work of painter Steve Driscoll and photographer Finn O'Hara for their first-ever exhibition at a public art gallery. These Toronto-based artists face a dichotomy familiar to many millennials: urban lifestyles combined with a love for the outdoors. The resulting images are moments of intervention on landscapes that are sharply foreign to the production and even the subject matter of the paintings themselves. Their work is a creative response to the need for a sense of scale.

Morrisseau at the McMichael.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
Curated by Dr. Sarah Stanners.
A bold and colourful journey unfolds at the McMichael with the return of the work of ground-breaking artist Norval Morrisseau. Morrisseau at the McMichael takes visitors back to the summer of 1979, when the gallery was honoured to host Morrisseau as artist-in-residence. During this time, the artist worked on sixteen commissioned works, including the masterpiece Shaman and Disciples. This exhibition is drawn entirely from the McMichael's collection, and includes works from the 1979 commission as well as intimate photos of the artist at work in the Tom Thomson Shack on the McMichael grounds.
