Sam Vernon — Rage Wave
January 12 — February 10, 2018

Rage Wave is an ambitious, site-specific installation that marks Sam Vernon’s Canadian premier. Bringing together various materials, including images, photocopies and original drawings and prints, the project makes visible a powerful commentary on questions of postcoloniality and racial, sexual and historic memory. This project also extends on Vernon's continued interest in personal narratives and identity.

Sam Vernon earned her MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University in 2015 and her BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 2009. Her installations combine xeroxed drawings, photographs, paintings and sculptural components in an exploration of personal narrative and identity. She uses installation and performance to honor the past while revising historical memory. Vernon has most recently exhibited with Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, Fowler Museum at UCLA, Seattle Art Museum, Ewing Gallery of Art & Architecture at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the Emery Community Arts Center at the University of Maine, Farmington, MoCADA, or the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts in Brooklyn.

Madelyne Beckles — Arrangements
January 12 — February 10, 2018

Consumption, shame, and guilt, are recurring themes in Madelyne Beckles' work. Using photo-based imagery and readymade objects, she attempts to deconstruct these ideas using a critical race and feminist framework. Building on these links between the personal and the collective, Arrangements explores contexts of consumerism through methods of retail display and the interiority of object fetishism.

Madelyne Beckles is an artist from Toronto, currently based in Montreal. Her work centres on the performativity of narcissism and self-deprecation. Consumption, overt-sexuality, shame, and guilt are recurring themes in her work that she attempts to deconstruct using a critical race feminist frame work through the use of her body, and ready made objects, and imagery.
