The Rez Sisters

~ May 15, 2022 to May 28, 2022~ ~ . ~ ~ May 15, 2022 to May 28, 2022~ ~ ~ Life is in a holding pattern on the Wasaychigan Hill Indian Reserve. The roads still aren't paved, work is scarce and the only real action is at Big Joey's house. Pelajia isn't one of his conquests; she's dreaming of a life beyond the reserve. But that seems out of reach until – can it be true? – The Biggest Bingo in the World is coming to Toronto! Which means one thing; the mother of all road trips. So Pelajia and her high-spirited rez sisters pile into a borrowed van in search of a big payout. ~ ~ ~ ~ Back~ ~ ~ ~ . Event Details. Location: 174 Market Avenue, Winnipeg

False Idol is about leaving home to find and create new home, family, and community. To further push and explore community making theme that is integral in my practice, the exhibition will include and showcase collaborations with local Winnipeg creatives. All the creative collaborations will be exhibited alongside the photographs and videos from False Idol in a fully wrapped kaleidoscopic installation revealing a camouflaged newsstand.~~A newsstand, a temporal and ubiquitous space commonly appearing at airport terminals, holds a through line in these community narratives. A place for last minute gifts and needs on my way to see family, it is also a place that initiates the parting reality of leaving home. Realizing the limitation of the lens based medium, I work with installation to help me further skew and test the viewer's ability to adapt to a new setting. Along with the explosion of color, patterns, photographs, and videos, in this bizarre setting, the viewers are invited to find a sense of familiarity in the photographs of the 'other', the foreigners. The newsstand is a physical embodiment of our newsfeed, where we go to connect, learn, and challenge."~ ~ ~ ~ Back~ ~ ~ ~ . Event Details. Location: Unit 1 – 460 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg

Shakey Graves

~ May 9, 2022~ 8pm~ . ~ ~ May 9, 2022~ 8pm~ ~ The prehistory of Shakey Graves exists in two overstuffed folders. Inside them, artifacts document an immense era of anonymous DIY creativity, from 2007 through 2010 – the three years before Roll The Bones came out and changed his life.There are stencils, lyrics, drawings, prototypes for concert posters, and even a zine. The latter, which Graves – aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia – wrote and illustrated, tells the tale of a once-courageous, now retired mouse who must journey to the moon to save his sweetheart. At the time, he envisioned the photocopied storybook as a potential vessel for releasing his music.~ ~ ~ ~ Back~ ~ ~ ~ . Event Details. Location: 364 Smith St, Winnipeg
