Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter ... more
Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter explores perceptions of difference and diversity, assembling objects and artefacts into contemporary fables about the way representation and distortion, appropriation and assimilation can filter group and individual identities. Presented over the entire gallery, The Milliner's Daughter conjures a storyline about the power dynamics in relations between insiders and outsiders with all the vivid playfulness – and serious intent – of childhood fairy tales.

Lawren Harris: Leaps and Bounds.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
Curated by Dr. Sarah Stanners.
The leading member of the Group of Seven, Lawren S. Harris has become one of the most recognizable figures in landscape painting in Canada. A lesser known side of Harris's story is that he spent the second half of his career as an abstract painter. This exhibition demonstrates the breadth of Harris's oeuvre using works drawn entirely from the McMichael's collection, and includes personal photographs of the painter and some of the tools and materials he used to create his masterpieces.

Mother Tongue: Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Raafia Jessa, Jihee Min, Yvonne Singer, Shellie Zhang, Alize Zorlutuna. Language is a universal and abstract system of sounds and symbols. Yet, the social, political and cultural contexts in which a language is spoken greatly affect its development and usages. In ever increasingly globalized societies, our sociolinguistic identity is not often singular.  The language we speak at home, or learned as a child – our mother tongue – may not be the same one used in our everyday lives. Mother Tongue invites us to consider the complex relationships that exist between language and identity; how it defines who we are and how it can inform visual artistic practice.

Jon Sasaki: Things Saved for a Rainy Day. As part of Present | Perfect | Continuous, a year-long exhibition celebrating the Varley Art Gallery's 20th anniversary, Jon Sasaki was invited to create new work in response to our archival holdings. An unused panel from F. H. Varley's studio left in stormy weather is a meditation on the depictions of atmospheric elements in Varley's paintings and on the physical environment in which they are stored and displayed. Varley's junk drawer of 1969 made useful in the present is an attempt to imbue a collection of random "bits and pieces" with a new purpose.

Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley are on view in the Collections Gallery. In addition, selected interventions by contemporary artists bring new insights to the study of F. H. Varley's work from our collection.
