There and Gone: Exhibition Opening Reception
May 20th, 2023
Please join us as we celebrate the opening of our group exhibition, There and Gone
The future, and what it looks like, has always been a point of tension in Newfoundland and Labrador. With the Cod Moratorium in 1992 shutting down one of the province’s main industries, alongside a long history of generational poverty, the subject of what a future looks like here has traditionally been met with an upbeat apathy.
There and Gone, featuring artists Andrea Cooper and Daniel Rumbolt, confronts the feelings of isolation and anxiety as well as a can-do attitude and playfulness that have permeated our lives and culture for generations. Their works view these themes softly, letting us know that within the anxieties of impermanence and unknowing is a constant and forever push and pull; that like the seasons, hard times come and go.
We gratefully acknowledge the support from Canada Council and Arts NL for our 2023 LAND programming.
