Our current exhibition

Birds of a Feather

28 Oct 2020 to 25 Jun 2021
Curated by Ameen Ahmed
Exhibition site

Presented in conjunction with the Jackman Humanities Institute. Birds of a Feather is composed of artists’ works that directly respond to Jackman Humanities Institute Research Fellows’ projects. The works offer tools, commentary, and/or encouragement through visual or conceptual means. Silently, but not necessarily quietly, they image different forms of commonality and collectivity, incorporation and inclusion.
