Bar & Food
Co-curated by Studio Sixty Six and Myka Burke, Articulations (November 30 - January 6) features the artwork of 40 women/femmes artists working in the National Capital Region (unceded Algonquin territory). As a landmark year in terms of Canadian colonial history, it is a crucial time to identify ways in which our country can and should grow. Historically and currently, female-identifying artists (especially those of colour) are, sadly, underrepresented in Canada’s art galleries.
As a gallery run by women, Studio Sixty Six wishes to focus its efforts towards encouraging local Canadian women/femmes artists. Co-Curator Myka Burke interviewed all 40 artists regarding their experiences and perspectives as women/femme artists working in the region, compiled and available to listen to during the exhibition and through a special online minisite.
10% of all artwork sales from the duration of the exhibition will be donated to OCTEVAW (Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women), who will be present at the reception to share information about their impressive initiatives.
Food and special gift for attendees provided by Whole Foods Market Lansdowne Park.
