Off-Centre: Queer Contemporary Art in the Prairies

Sherwood Gallery: June 22 – September 8, 2019
Central Gallery and Mediatheque: July 12 – September 15, 2019
Opening reception: July 12, 2019, 6 – 10pm, Central Library

This exhibition aims to destabilize urban/rural and centre/margin binaries by presenting engaging and politically relevant work by queer artists from and/or currently living in the Canadian Prairies. The exhibition addresses gender, sexuality and regionalism through an intersectional lens, and investigates the possibility of queering the “Prairie Gothic” aesthetic by presenting fantastical, playful, imaginary, and surreal representations of the human form. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Curator, Moving Image and Performance, Dunlop Art Gallery and RPL Film Theatre and Gary Varro, Executive and Artistic Director, Queer City Cinema. Central Gallery, Central Mediatheque, and Sherwood Gallery.

Daniel Barrow: The Reading Wand

Performance and artist talk: July 12, 2019, 6 – 7pm

Join us for an artist talk and a performance excerpt from Daniel Barrow’s work-in-progress, The Reading Wand, an experimental, animated narrative which illustrates the story of a teen who is obsessed with a nun whom he regards as a “flawless beauty.” This live performance uses and repurposes the Amiga Deluxe Paint program to create a kind of digital puppet show. Its central character, Dominic, is a reading wand, an imaginary piece of technology with an animatronic head. When the reading wand is moved across a line of text, it will speak it with perfect enunciation, translating foreign languages, correcting grammar, and acting as a surrogate companion for its user. Curated by Blair Fornwald, Curator, Moving Image and Performance, Dunlop Art Gallery and RPL Film Theatre and Gary Varro, Executive and Artistic Director, Queer City Cinema. RPL Film Theatre.
