We’re taking online bids for the silent auction items in our “Up the ante” fundraiser. TO BID: phone (705) 476-2444 or email email@example.com.
Download the exhibition catalog here in PDF format or view an album of the art here on Facebook.
“Up the ante” is an Indigenous Art Show & Silent Auction that begins with appreciation for Indigenous artists’ gifts. We hope that by showcasing Indigenous art of this region, this show will also “up the ante” in (re)negotiating our ways of living together here on Nipissing territory.
Proceeds from the silent auction will go to the White Water Gallery’s renovation fund.
Follow the teal and B&W lines that the Point of No Return Collective has installed from the White Water Gallery door, and as you turn the corner, you will find that the orderly institutional guides start to jump, twist, and break as they wind toward the main wall of the gallery.
After blasting through video art works by soJin Chun
and Ulysses Castellanos
, those lines spill onto the gallery floor, where you can trace the remains of our institutionalized society, to a large video and sound installation that journeys beyond the edges of our universe…. where you will encounter no deeper meaning. What matters, then, is the meaning we each make.
You’ve only got until Saturday October 24th to see what you might make of this impressive installation work, so we hope to see you sometime over the next couple of weeks!
Duke & Battersby: Curiosity Built the Cat
Curated by Evan Tyler
June 12 – July 25, 2015
Opening Reception: June 26, 2015 @ 7 pm
Cooper Battersby and Emily Vey Duke are partners in life, art and curious inquisitions into the human condition. Since the mid-1990’s, the duo known as Duke and Battersby have produced an impressive number of works in a diversity of media that include video, sculpture, installation, printed matter and the written word.
The show “Curiosity Built the Cat” provides the audience with a survey of some of their most profound works from 1997 to the present, and also features the Canadian premiere of their latest video Dear Lorde. This exhibition expresses the essence of a true lifelong collaboration: the unique, poetic pursuit of curiosity and empathy.
