Closing Celebration of Summer Exhibitions | August 25, 1 - 4 PM

FREE | Barrier-Free Space | All Gender Washroom | Refreshments Provided


For the past seven weeks, artists from our Summer exhibitions have been working with diverse Mississauga residents and communities to create and animate our evolving, interactive gallery - border crossings: travelling along the in between, exploring and expressing differing and intersecting border crossing stories.


Come to the AGM on Saturday afternoon for the Closing Celebration of this project and our Summer Exhibitions, Lisa Hirmer’s In Case of Emergency and UNRULY: Jasmine Noseworthy Persaud | Harmeet Rehal in the XIT-RM. Spend time with the exhibitions, listen to the stories, share your own story. Enjoy some refreshments and join us as we bid farewell to our summer exhibitions!

 

 

 

 

Bonnie Devine | Circles and Lines: Michi Saagiig

Opening Reception and Artist Talk | September 6, 6 - 9 PM

FREE | Barrier-Free Space | All Gender Washroom | Refreshments Provided

 

Coming from Toronto and need a ride? Get on our FREE SHUTTLE BUS from Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street, Toronto) departing at 6 PM. Bus leaves the AGM at 8:30 PM for return trip to Toronto. RSVP on Eventbrite to reserve your seat!

 

This project uses various media and mapping strategies to explore the complex colonial histories of the north shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, which include the cities of Mississauga and Toronto and the traditional territories of the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) and the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations of the Grand River). Through the combination of a series of scrolls, maps, media, and braided reeds, Circles and Lines: Michi Saagig aims to reconnect and ground us on the traditional territory and land we benefit from, live on, and call home.
 

 

Bonnie Devine and Guest Curator Raven Davis will discuss the exhibition, Circles and Lines: Michi Saagiig.
