Red Head Gallery artists take over the gallery space for one week to celebrate the collective spirit, exhibiting past, current and ongoing work. It is the first opportunity in 4 years for the gallery artists to exhibit together in the gallery. The exhibition draws parallels between concept, approach and process within a diverse body of work. Comparing ideas, themes, creative process, materials and formalist properties within the work, the project looks to find unique and remarkable correlations between formerly unrelated works that expands the scope of their original intentions. It is an exhibition of the mercurial and mysterious shared tangents within a collective consciousness, and like the discovered tangents, the exhibition itself is momentary & fleeting.

Downtown/s - Urban Renewals Today for Tomorrow, The 2017 Windsor-Essex Triennial of Contemporary Art brings together examples of contemporary art made by 22 artists living and working in Southwestern Ontario, Windsor-Essex and the Greater Detroit region surrounding the theme of downtown - downtown destruction and downtown renewal. Since the Great Recession, and the major economic downturn that started in 2008 as well as Detroit’s bankruptcy in 2013, Windsor has seen a significant amount of change and transformation in the last decade. Like many other urban centers across North America, this city has continued to experience a variety of shifts in economic, agricultural, social and cultural growth. To reflect the expanding footprint of Windsor’s new downtown core, artists are engaging with and presenting work in additional venues, including the University of Windsor’sSchool of Creative Arts, the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, Capitol Theatre, Windsor Sculpture Park – City of Windsor and Artcite Inc. In its entirety, this year’s Triennial is a call to action – an invitation to the public to experience anew the City of Windsor, albeit from its alleyways to its picturesque waterfront.
Soheila would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts for their generous support of her artistic practice.
