Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 16, 2013 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

The residency and exhibition are produced by the Foreman Art Gallery and financially supported with funds from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ministère de la Culture, des communications et de la condition féminine, and the City of Sherbrooke.

DodoLab is an evolving collaborative program lead by artists Lisa Hirmer and Andrew Hunter.  Hunter is an artist, writer, curator and educator based in Hamilton, Ontario. He was recently named Curator of Canadian Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. Hirmer is a designer, photographer, artist and writer based in Guelph, Ontario.

We Are Conditioned To Our Fate? is a community-based exhibition project led by the artist collective DodoLab (Guelph/Hamilton) that undertakes a critical, yet playful, exploration of the culture and identity of Bishop's University by  probing the perceptions of students, alumni, faculty and the administration, as well as the wider community of Lennoxville. Through informal actions, participation in existing events, and direct collaborations with students and alumni, they have explored the narratives of community and institutional identity. Produced to function as a creative laboratory that allows for dialogue, participation and a continued accumulation of research, this exhibition project is both rooted in the history of Bishop’s University and its current students and community.

This is the 2nd special project within the Community Art Lab of the Foreman Art Gallery’s three-year research initiative titled 'How does Art Teach?' This long term platform seeks to consider the role of art as a tool for critical political and social engagement. We Are Conditioned To Our Fate? is curated by the Foreman Art Gallery’s Curator of Education and Cultural Action, Stephanie Nadeau, and independent education curator Yaël Filipovic.

Please join us for the opening reception and sherry party, Tuesday April 16, 2013, from 5:00 – 7:00pm. The exhibition is on view until May 4, 2013.
