The Art Gallery Mississauga (AGM) is hosting a number of free educational workshops this Summer in support of the three exhibitions opening June 28 and running until August 26.
In Case of Emergency is a project by artist Lisa Hirmer that looks at the idea of emergency and our relationship to it as future event. How can it cause us to rethink priorities and reconsider relationships? How do our understandings of and responses to emergencies change our communities, societies and the world? Visitors are invited to think on and contribute their own perspectives on emergency in this interactive exhibition.
border crossings: travelling along the in between is an interactive, evolving gallery. For seven weeks, visitors and community members are invited to join us as we travel down the river of stories. Through artist-led workshops, we will explore and express our differing and intersecting border crossing stories. Animated by workshops facilitated by the AGM’s Community Activator Sharada Eswar and artists Sonja Rainey and Miranda Sharp, border crossings: travelling along the in between, is a space for sharing our stories, forging connections and understanding each other better across cultures and generations.
UNRULY is a conversation between two local queer and trans artists of colour, a creative intervention that contends with the (dis)embodied ways of moving through home, space, belonging, community, binaries and boundaries. Jasmine Noseworthy Persaud and Harmeet Rehal’s bodies of work coalesce in the XIT-RM, inviting the visitor to see, feel, experience and question.
