Extracting Narratives + Source Material

June 5 2017

Extracting Narratives was an artistic program that brought together new work by contemporary painters Jeroen Witvliet (All Tomorrow’s Parties) and Neil McClelland (The Perfect Nowhere) in an exhibition that drew attention to shifting relations found in daily life and varied stories told through the painted image.

Source Material I initiated a dialogue with the concurrent exhibitions in Extracting Narratives. By paying close attention to objects, architecture, photographic images and stories, narratives could be rearranged into new stories.

The existing discourse was expanded in Source Material II: Unfolding, to instigate a responsive dialogue with the visual storytelling, materiality and gesture expressed by Vida Simon and Jack Stanley (Montreal) in the exhibition Carried Away.
