Giorgia Volpe: Weaving the Existing

Display Date: 
October 14, 2017 - January 28, 2018
Where: 
Level 4, Main Gallery

This touring exhibition brings together 15 years of works by Brazilian-Canadian artist Giorgia Volpe, whose multidisciplinary practice often fosters relationships and dialogue —whether through fleeting interventions, public performances, or art objects. In particular, Volpe draws from remnants that end up in recycling centres or landfill sites, working with readily available materials and discards. Volpe often relies on weaving to develop her works, blending found materials as a metaphor for complex human relations, and inviting us to look differently at what already exists.

Organized and circulated by the Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University.

With support from: The Canada Council for the Arts and Le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

Curated by Carl Johnson.
