Show “BEING IN-BETWEEN/ IN-BETWEEN BEING” and Artist talk with Julia Rose Sutherland. “an exploration of intertextuality and identity by womxn and queer artists”

Curated by Jocelyn E. Marshall. 

“After an opening lecture by the curator of Being In-Between / In-Between Being, Jocelyn E. Marshall, interdisciplinary artist Julia Rose Sutherland presents her work on “Protesting Through Traditional Craft.” Sutherland discusses the events of Friday, June 12 2020, when her cousin Rodney Levi was shot twice in the chest and killed by the hands of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer on the Metepenagiag Mi’kmaq Nation reservation. The shared artwork responds to police brutality in North America, and, in particular, that of Turtle Island (Canada) and the ongoing colonial genocide of First Nations peoples. Overall, Sutherland gives an account on the subject matter of craft as mediation and resistance against ongoing violence.”

“Tendere features seven AUArts BFA Fibre Alumni - Morgan Rose Free, Lindsay Joy, Karin McGinn, Vaughan McMillan, Natalie Lauchlan, Sabrina Sachiko Niebler and Julia Rose Sutherland. In Tendere, metier and materiality enact sympoietic conversations with ancestors, strangers, lovers and friends.

“Tendere” is an Italian word with its root in Latin meaning to stretch out, distend or extend. The gesture implied by the word is an outstretched hand about to act, to tend, to take care. A gesture analogous to the movements of hands that embroider, rub, prick, weave, and twist and sew.

The seven artists selected for Tendere examine the embodied meanings of materiality and process in contexts of personal identity, culture, ecological precarity and mutual contingency.”

The exhibition is curated by Mackenzie Kelly-Frère (AU Arts alum 1998).

WINTER 2019

TRUCK Contemporary Art (U-HALL Space)

  • An inquiry into the ways that we memorialize marginalized victims of murder and genocide, how we can activate memorial spaces to better honour these victims
  • Resistance against typical narratives which place the blame on victims of gender and race-based violence, a call for action against this violence
  • Analogous trauma, a collective mourning of unjust and violent deaths
  • A resilience forged through rage and grief, standing strong in the face of institutional and societal adversaries
