Tender Works

October 12, 2019 - February 23, 2020 Curated by Nicole Stanbridge | Founders and Drury Galleries

PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
Saturday, Oct 12, 2019 | ALL DAY | ADMISSION BY DONATION

What does it mean to be tender, to work tenderly or with tenderness? What are the ways in which we can think about tenderness as a tool for healing?
The video works in this exhibition by artists Rachel Echenberg, Kerri Flannigan, Farheen HaQ, Elisa Harkins, Lisa Jackson, Tiffany Joseph, Chase Joynt, Amanda Strong, and Nicholas Vandergugten, invite us to reflect on the various ways in which we might think about tenderness. These works speak of personal narratives: community activism and advocacy; the complexity and intimacy of family relationships; continuity of traditions and culture and honouring of peers and elders.

In this way, we see tenderness as an act of caring, support, of “holding up” each other and as a way to treat ourselves with care. It can also address points of pain and discomfort, and how we might work through them together.

Featuring artists Rachel Echenberg, Kerri Flannigan, Farheen HaQ, Elisa Harkins, Lisa Jackson, Tiffany Joseph, Chase Joynt, Amanda Strong, and Nicholas Vandergugten.

Exhibition runs until Feb 23, 2020.
