Nadia Belerique: The Weather Channel
8 April – 3 June 2018
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens

Investigating the expanded status of the image in our current moment, Toronto-based artist Nadia Belerique cannily combines photo-based image-making with sculptural installation to mine the dynamic relationship between the perceptual, the psychological and the representational. For her first solo exhibition in a museum, Belerique will present an installation of new works that extends her recent Bed Island series. Featuring a series of photo-driven sculptures and an elevated steel and glass frame (or "bed") that responds to the architecture of Gairloch estate, The Weather Channel continues Belerique's ongoing engagement with the image plane as an index for the actual and imagined limits of the body, human identity and the spaces they generate.

Sara Cwynar: Tracy
8 April – 3 June 2018
Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square

In her first museum exhibition in Canada, Sara Cwynar presents her acclaimed works Soft Film (2016) and Rose Gold (2017) alongside her newest film and a suite of recent photographs. Using voice-over, a fast-moving collage of found images and footage of the artist herself working in the studio, Cwynar's densely layered films range over a number of subjects relevant to our current moment, such as our relationship to technology and advertising culture, the potent emotional and aspirational charge of material consumption, and how colour can be coveted as an object of desire. Her photographs expand on these themes, asking critical questions about the power at play in the circulation and consumption of images and things.

Sara Cwynar: Tracy is co-presented with the Images Festival, April 12–20, 2018.
