an art show a week | week 3: The Sunshine Eaters, Onsite Gallery

Shary Boyle: Change Room, Trumpet, Orchid, 2018

Hace unos días se inauguró la exhibición “The Sunshine Eaters“, justo después de una plática entre los artistas Nick Cave y Ebony G. Patterson, moderada por la curadora Lisa Deanne Smith (con quien trabajé hace unos meses en OCAD U) y que me perdí por estar enferma (aplausos). Además de curiosidad de ver los famosos SOUNDSUITS de Nick Cave, también tenía muchas ganas de visitar la Onsite Gallery, que me tocó ver desde antes que abrieran al público en Septiembre pasado. Aquí algunas fotos de mi visita. 

A few days ago, before the opening of the exhibition “The Sunshine Eaters,“ there was a conversation with artists Nick Cave and Ebony G. Patterson, moderated by curator Lisa Deanne Smith (whom I worked with a few months ago at OCAD U), which I totally missed because I got sick (applause). Besides being curious about the famous SOUNDSUITS by Nick Cave, I was dying to visit the Onsite Gallery, which I was able to see way before it opened its doors to the public this past September. Here some pictures of my visit.

“The Sunshine Eaters exhibition highlights how contemporary artists and designers look to the land, plants, flowers and trees as means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of crises. The artists and designers in the exhibition come from different cultural milieus and have distinct objectives and concerns with their work.“
