Public Open House: Denyse Thomasos : Odyssey (TBA)

Dec 4 | Nov 27 - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

*Please be advised that the opening of this travelling exhibition is delayed until further notice due to implications of extreme weather.

Denyse Thomasos (1964–2012) was a Trinidadian-Canadian artist whose epic paintings incorporate imagery from a range of sources, including Caribbean textiles, historic slave ships, industrial shipyards, graveyards, villages and maximum security prisons.  Thomasos’ art enacts a delicate balance between representation and abstraction, and holds a unique place in the history of Canadian art, adding to a narrative from which Black, Indigenous, and people of colour’s voices have for too long been excluded.

Enjoy free admission to the exhibition all day from 10am-5pm.
