Grace is a complex survey of works by Cree/Saulteaux/Métis artist Lori Blondeau.

Her extensive body of work continues to impact and influence Canadian contemporary art.

In addition to her extensive exhibition history, Blondeau is a co-founder of the Indigenous artist collective, TRIBE Inc. She has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally including at the Banff Centre; Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon; Open Space, Victoria; and FOFA, Montreal.

BRENDA FRANCIS PELKEY: A RETROSPECTIVE

Jan 22 - Apr 16, 2018
curated by Catherine M. Mastin

Organized and Circulated by The Art Gallery of Windsor

OPENING RECEPTION
Friday, January 26th at 7:30pm, College Art Galleries

The Artist will be in attendance. 

A career-review as proposed by this retrospective is a timely undertaking to widen knowledge on Pelkey’s contributions to contemporary photography and to expand awareness of her work through public art gallery venues and the places she has lived in the Prairies, central Canada and the East Coast throughout her life. The exhibition will begin with a selection of her early documentary works from the Foundry project (1988) and include those major bodies of works which have since challenged the documentary role of photography to deploy the medium as one of rich social and psychological impact. Pelkey’s practice first demonstrated these latter concerns in 1989 when those photographs comprising the exhibition, the great effect of the imagination on the world (1988-89) were shown. Since then, Pelkey has continued to evolve these themes of psychic and social identity with photographs of landscapes, urban sites and people.
