Uncover

September 7 - November 23 2019

The work of Anna Gustafson / Clea Minaker / Elizabeth Russell + Natalie Nickerson / Heather Passmore / Nadine Bariteau considers the implications of concealing and revealing in the convergent program UNCOVER which includes an artist residency, a project room studio, community engagement + artist performance events, and an exhibition.

The Comox Valley Art Gallery Summer 2019 Artist Residency of Clea Minaker and the Project Room Studio of Nadine Bariteau will precede the exhibition. Their site responsive projects developed through their creative research will be presented in the exhibition UNCOVER September 28 – November 23, 2019. Anna Gustafson’s The System Is Not Foolproof is ‘a multi-chapter project’ in which the nature of the artist’s work exposes the effects human behaviour on the land. ‘…the idea of apocalypse as the end of living under false pretence — a time where the Truth is unveiled’ is presented in the collaborative presentation of Elizabeth Russell + Natalie Nickerson. Heather Passmore’s work Roman Charity “explores an under-examined motive for discomfort with breastfeeding – that is a powerful display of human interdependence.”

On Saturday, September 28, 2019 an Art Opening / Artist Talks / Art Performance will offer the community an opportunity to meet the artists and engage in dialogue about the work presented.
