Back in 2007, RENDER commissioned artist/curator Jeff Thomas to develop an new exhibition/research project in response to several land disputes along the Grand River that are focussed on the land granted to the Six Nations by the British Crown in 1792. The resulting project titled Home/land & Security features new works by a dozen artists all reflecting on complex issues of home, identity, place and security.
Artists: Barry Ace, Sara Angelucci, Mary Anne Barkhouse, Michael Belmore, Ron Benner, Rosalie Favell, Lorraine Gilbert, Jamelie Hassan, Pat Hess, Penny McCann, Wanda Nanibush, Shelley Niro, Bear Thomas and Eric Walker.
The exhibition ran November 5, 2009 through February 12, 2010 and was accompanied by a series of discussions and events.
At the Water’s Edge: Grand River Sketches
A reinstallation of Alice Angus’ commissioned work At the Water’s Edge: Grand River Sketches. Originally presented in the atrium of the UW School of Architecture, this new installation will be accompanied by the artist’s latest film/video work Topographies and Tales. Alice Angus is co-director of our international partner proboscis. At the Water’s Edge: Grand River Sketches is based on a series of site visits and archival research conducted over the summer of 2008 and the resulting large-format work incorporates drawing, watercolour and digital image transfers along with video. The installation was on view from Wednesday September 23rd through the end of October.
