Week 4 In Review

Karolina Bialkowska and Tomas Jonsson

Coming Up This Week

The residency continues as many of us reflect over the past weekend and look forward to the coming week.
Salmon Canning took place over the weekend and will be distributed towards the final weeks of the residency.

This week we welcomed new arrivals, Amish Morrel, Leah Decter, Charles Campbell, as well as announcements of artists arriving in the week, including Elisabeth LaPensee, Cathy Mattes, Jackson Two Bears and Aaron Franks.

Curators Jordan Strom and Joni Low are also visiting on the 27th and 28th, and interested in meeting with participants in the residency.

Amish Morrel, editor of C Magazine is interested in expanding critical networks of exchange and writing from regions outside of the metropolitan centres and shares an interest in the ideas generated and working through in the course of the residency. His visit here, while brief, will continue to resonate.

Charles Campbell will continue his exploration on various cultures of reconciliation and the power of agency that is found in complicity, specifically in our refusal.  He looks forward to exploring possibilities of collective engagement.
