So while the show is on hiatus until the summer, here is some incomplete information on what a few of these under achievers will be up to in the next little while:
Amalie Atkins has been super busy at work for a major solo exhibition at The Mackenzie this Winter and Spring titled, we live on the edge of disaster and imagine we are in a musical, running February 1 to June 14, 2014. No one has seen her in months, so go to the opening on January 31!
Tammi Campbell will be leading a residency at Artscape’s Gibraltor Point in March called Unfaithful Remake. Registration deadline is February 7! Around the same time as the residency, Tammi will be in a feature spread by Nancy Tousley out in the Spring 2014 issue of Canadian Art, and she will also be in the show echoes at Galerie Hugues Charbonneau in Montreal, April 2014. There’s actually more, but that’s enough to know, right?
Divya Mehra has been busy
tweeting working on her first solo exhibition with Georgia Scherman Projects opening on March 6 and running until April 12, 2014
Wednesday Lupypciw is currently one of the ACAD alumni in the exhibition, In The Making, curated by Diana Sherlock, running January 16 to March 1, 2014 . In April and May, Wednesday will be showing the LOOM MUSIC video en francais at La Centrale as part of a 2-person show with Jenna Dawn McLellan. Annnnd this summer, a second group drum gig will be taking place in Regina with the Dunlop + Queen City Pride. For a previous iteration, check out this review on FADO’s blog by Caroline Azar.
Sarah Anne Johnson is currently the Artist in Residence at Emily Carr University for this semester, but Sarah will still be on the road a lot, including being in the group exhibition New Mythologies at Alfred University and giving an artist talk on January 31, 2014. She will also soon be in the third 3 person group exhibition as part of Platform Stockholm’s Curatron program, which is a thing I do not understand. However, Peter von Tiesenhausen will also be part of this so I am excited for them. Opening on February 8.
Estevan Art Gallery will feature a solo exhibition by Leesa Streifler, Embodied, between March 14 and April 25, 2014. Later on in the year, I believe Heather Benning will also have a solo exhibition there. Currently, Leesa and Heather share hallways together at The University of Regina where Leesa is a Professor of Visual Art and where Heather is their 2014-15 Artist in Residence.
Heather will also be executing a large scale rural sculpture in Norfolk County. Here is a youtube video of the first part of her residency there.
