Celestial Bodies: expanding sexuality and gender

Group exhibition by Cassils, Adrien Crossman, Dayna Danger, Brandon Hoax, Vivek Shraya, Sin Wai Kin, and Rah Eleh

Curated by Genevieve Flavelle and Jenelle Pasiechnik

September 2 to November 11, 2023 

The group exhibition celebrates works by artists that expand notions of gender. Starting from this expanded notion, the exhibition explores facets of gender, sexuality, identity, LGBTQIA+ rights and advocacy, community joy and vibrancy through the work of artists working across mediums. The artists come from diverse backgrounds, ancestries, and points of experience, bringing a prismatic view of already complex and rich topics that are highly relevant and deserving of greater visibility and understanding. 

The first of its kind in Campbell River and North Vancouver Island, this exhibition aims to create safe spaces for folks who express gender fluidities to feel welcome and seen, as well as create a space where folks who have questions and are unsure can come for education and discussion. It is our hope that the exhibition and accompanying programming creates an atmosphere of high visibility, support, and advocacy.
