  • PANEL DISCUSSION: Representing the Self, Connecting to Others
    McMaster Museum of Art

    Curators: Sarah Brophy and Janice Hladki  6 November 2014 – 21 March 2015  ARTISTS: Carl Beam, Rebecca Belmore, Deanna Bowen,… More >

    Curators: Sarah Brophy and Janice Hladki 
    6 November 2014 – 21 March 2015 
    ARTISTS: Carl Beam, Rebecca Belmore, Deanna Bowen, Cathy Daley, General Idea, Doug Guildford, László Moholy-Nagy, Kent Monkman, Edvard Munch, Grace Ndiritu, Andy Warhol, Joyce Wieland, and Jin-me Yoon     

      
    This group exhibition focuses on self-representation and self-portraiture. Bringing together a thought-provoking mix of Canadian-based and international works, the exhibition addresses critical or interrogated self-representation in relation to multiple selves, the self-other relation, and the constitution of gender, sexuality, critical embodiment, race, and Indigeneity. Through photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, sculpture, and video art, the curators consider how representations of displacement, doubling, recognition and mis-recognition, and mutability unsettle ideas about memory and countermemory in autobiographical art.

    This project is supported at McMaster University by the Arts Research Board; Forward with Integrity, Office of the President; and Research & International Affairs. 

    OPENING RECEPTION: November 6, 6 – 8 pm
    BOOK LAUNCH: Curators’ edited collection, Embodied Politics in Visual Autobiography (2014, University of Toronto Press): November 6, 6 – 8 pm

    This powerful rock opera from the turbulent '60s has at its center a social and political rebel. As the title suggests, Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

    Hamilton has a very rich artists’ scene, and a great number of brilliant painters. On the occasion of the AGH centennial, this exhibition features ten artists from the Greater Hamilton area, many of whom are not well-known, showcasing the diverse subject matter, techniques and materials that are of the moment in contemporary painting practices. Direct from the artist’s studios and local private collections, the exhibition includes over thirty works in landscape, portraiture and abstraction. From lush oil paintings to a sculptural installation, the range of media, form and scale is intriguing.

    Runs during regular Gallery hours. See website for details.
