The Art Gallery of Windsor will host an online public panel discussion Saturday, Nov. 6, at 1 p.m. to discuss the curatorial project and group exhibition (un)happy objects currently hosted on the Artcite Inc. website.
Panellists include artists Shellie Zhang, Madelyne Beckles, Vida Beyer, and Kaythi joining host, curator, and UWindsor alumna Adrienne Crossman (MFA Visual Art 2018).
Crossman says these artists take on subjects often seen as “difficult,” such as queer identity, cultural heritage, race, and feminism, through the recontextualization of cultural iconography.
“Some of the topics we will cover in Saturday’s panel include: the role of humour in artwork, material strategies, and points of access for an audience,” says Crossman. “As well as the role of the body and the role of text in the artwork.”
Crossman has exhibited across Canada and internationally and is an assistant professor in the School of the Arts at McMaster University.
The panel discussion is supported by the University of Windsor’s School of Creative Arts, the Arts Council Windsor & Region, and the Art Gallery of Windsor. Register to attend here.
