Humour as Medicine

October 7 to November 27

Curated by Jenelle M. Pasiechnik

Humour as Medicine presents the work of contemporary Indigenous artists Sonny Assu (Ligwiłda’xw), Lori Blondeau (Cree/Salteaux/Metis), and Hjalmer Wenstob (Nuu-chah-nulth) in an exhibition that exemplifies how humour can be a powerful coping mechanism for trauma and emotional distress. Underpinning the show is the goal to explore humour as a tool for healing, activism, and open communication. 

The ability to laugh at the pain and devastation inflicted by colonial and racist attitudes has been a necessary coping mechanism in Indigenous communities the world over. The powerful impact of humour can be a cathartic release and a finely honed tool used to dispense truth. Read More.

Exploring Care: Holding Space

June 1 to August 28, 2021

Artists: Skeena Reece and Whess Harman

Curated by Jenelle M. Pasiechnik

This three part group exhibition aims to explore the ethics of taking care. Taking care within and outside the field of art professions, prioritizing care for the self and others, and the fatigue that results from enduring and educating under difficult circumstances. The aim of the exhibition is to create a space of safety and knowledge, where people feel welcome to share their experiences and connect with others around issues pertinent to mental and physical well being.
