Humber Galleries

The Breadth of Distance
Amber Williams-King, Charlene Vickers, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Melisse Watson, Petrina Ng, Soko Fong Negash, Shellie Zhang
Curated by Alize Zorlutuna
February 4–April 6, 2019

Bringing together photography, video, installation, and sculpture, these artworks shift across geographies, cultural perspectives, and time. Considering grief, longing, care and resilience, they articulate how relationships to place, representation, and belief shape who we are and how we move in the present.

This exhibition asks us to reckon with how we came to be here on this land. Whether we are Indigenous, multi-generational settlers, or recent immigrants, our current moment demands we think through how we might build mutual understanding and empathy while recognizing our many differences.

Please join Humber Galleries' Curator in Residence Alize Zorlutuna for a tour of the exhibition.

Public Volumes brings together exhibitions, public programming and writing that centre around broad interpretations of spatial justice. These many projects focus in or out from a particular location or series of locations, fostering deeper insight into why space matters. From thinking through ideas around memory and ways of living to community mobilization and immigration, Public Volumes espouses the multiple meanings folded into the spaces of everyday life and those of unexpected circumstance. This program looks to the tangled means by which we defend the spaces that offer support and the efforts we take to transform those that fail.

Please join us for the opening reception of Public Volumes.
