"Gather": Group Exhibition at Flux Gallery at aceartinc.

  • aceartinc. 290 McDermot Avenue, 2nd Floor Winnipeg Canada (map)

For Flux Gallery’s first curated exhibition, Hassaan Ashraf, Niamh Dooley, Ekene Maduka, and Emma Mayer have been grouped together under the theme of portraiture and textiles. “Gather” is an exhibition that includes painting, performance, textiles, photography, collage, and multi-media work. "Gather" speaks to identity formations in relation to garments, fashion, and cultural transience. Through acts of cultural jamming and resistance Ashraf, Dooley, Maduka, and Mayer recontextualize the textiles and garments they utilize—at times evidenced by the maker’s hand, and at other times evidenced by the subjects’ gaze and mood. From humourous, sentimental, or nostalgic to confrontational, empowering, or inviting, the subjects in these works gesture towards an engagement between artist and subject, artist and viewer, and viewer and subject.

"Gather" is curated by Noor Bhangu, Christina Hajjar, Pablo Javier Castillo Huerta, and Mariana Muñoz Gomez on behalf of Flux Gallery
