KIN: An Integrate Festival Showcase
Friday 24th, 7-9pm; Saturday 25th, 10-5:30; Sunday 26th, 11-5
Madrona Gallery is pleased to present Kin, a group exhibition of works by contemporary Canadian female artists. The show is presented as a part of our annual Colours of Summer exhibition and in conjunction with Integrate Arts Festival 2018. Included are works by artists Tamara Bond, Samantha Dickie, Megan Dietrich, Meghan Hildebrand, Morgana Wallace, Caitlin McDonagh, Nicotye Samayualie, Ningiukulu Teevee, and Diana Thorneycroft. Across their respective media, these nine artists engage with themes of craft, narrative, gender, and sexuality, each with a critical awareness of the legacy forged by female contemporary artists before them. From Diana Thorneycroft’s photographic homage to Cindy Sherman, to Megan Dietrich’s fluid abstracts in the style of Helen Frankenthaler and Ningiukulu Teevee’s depictions of women in folklore and contemporary Inuit culture, each of these artists engages with the conversation of gender in fine art from a unique perspective. We hope you will join us for our annual Integrate Showcase, and experience the work of these artists firsthand.
