The Source: Rethinking Water Through Contemporary Art
Saturday, November 18, 2017, 2 to 4 pm
401 Richmond Street, Suite 104
The artists in the project are: Nadine Bariteau, Raymond Boisjoly, Elizabeth Chitty, Soheila Esfahani, Gautam Garoo, Patrick Mahon, Colin Miner, Lucy & Jorge Orta, and Gu Xiong. Water, of course, defines the boundaries between nations and peoples, but in the greater scheme of things, erases differences. By bringing together Canadian artists representing Indigenous and settling cultures, both French- and English-speaking, alongside international artists with roots in countries around the globe, The Source contemplates water from a nationless, borderless perspective.
This substantial publication was co-published by Rodman Hall Art Centre/Brock University, St. Catharines, and Art Lab, Western University, London. The book features texts by curator Stuart Reid, Patrick Mahon and renown water specialist Robert Sandford. The book also includes conversations between participating artists around several topics related to the theme of water. The book was designed by Rob Gray of Designworks Studios in Toronto, and beautifully documents the major exhibition project that was mounted in St. Catharines during summer 2014.
