We are excited to announce the 2021 Middlebrook Prize Exhibition, “Collective Offering” opens tomorrow at Art Gallery of Guelph with special opening day hours from 5 to 8 pm.
Curated by Mitra Fakhrashrafi and Vince Rozario, the exhibition responds to the compartmentalization and fragmentation produced by colonialism and deepened by this period of unprecedented political, ecological, and public health crises. Recognizing the particularly heavy toll exacted on racialized, migrant, disabled, and low-income communities, the curators will work with artists Meech Boakye and Christina Kingsbury, Shirin Fahimi, LAL (Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray), Jessica Karuhanga, and Shaista Latif, whose performance and new media practices speak to collective interdependence, mitigating the impacts of isolation for communities, networks of care, and our bodies themselves.
Collective Offerings will run
Thursday 21 October until Sunday March, 2022
Free. All welcome
Art Gallery of Guelph 358 Gordon Street Guelph, ON
