tell them from me: Exhibition Opening

 June 29, 2024

Join us to celebrate, tell them from me, a group exhibition featuring artists Emily Hayes, Ashley Hemmings, Ann Manuel, Alana Morouney, and Sabrina Pinksen.

What is your relationship with your mother like? With your grandmother? With your aunt or daughter? We all have generational relationships and knowledge that have been passed along and gifted to us from the women in our life. Whether that be sewing, make-up tips, family traditions, where the best spots for blueberry picking are, what not to wear on a first date, family drama, or how to properly shuffle a deck of cards.

How do we navigate all of that knowledge? How does it help us? How does it inhibit us? Our relationships with the knowledge that the many matriarchs of our family have passed down are one of the first ways we learn how to navigate the patriarchy and the world. tell them from me is an exhibition that examines the complexities of matrilineal relationships, knowledge, and domesticity present in Atlantic Canada. Together, artists Emily Hayes, Ashley Hemmings, Ann Manuel, Alana Morouney, and Sabrina Pinksen utilize textiles, painting, and interdisciplinary installation to portray the gentle, warm, and at times frigid nature of mother-daughter experiences, and the trauma and healing that happens within them.
