CURRENT EXHIBITION

FABULOUS IMAGES. WHEN FICTION TAKES ROOT

 

January 16th to March 21st, 2020 

Opening reception: Thursday, January 16th, from 5 to 7 pm

Artists: Sonny Assu, Danis Goulet, The Iyapo Repository, Larissa Sansour & Søren Lind, Skawennati

 

 Fabulous Images. When Fiction Takes Root examines the hermeneutical scope of science fiction as a narrative genre in the context of emancipatory discourses that foster ethnocultural diversity. The exhibition features works by Canadian and international artists, novels, posters, popular films, video games and collectibles, all of which are at the juncture of sci-fi and identity politics. Touching on a vast array of representation, from the utopian refuge to the darkest dystopias by way of uchronian narratives and social speculations, Fabulous Images examines how fiction reveals the possibilities of alternative existences.
