Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square
Susanna Heller's Ghost Tower is a major acquisition for Oakville Galleries' permanent collection and is being premiered in this exhibition together with eight other notable works on loan from very generous collectors.
The works in the exhibition are about the rupture and tenuousness of the post 9/11 world. They are deeply moving and terrifying—maelstroms of colour and line—that convey the feeling of intense loss and horror felt that September day. Heller leads us through topographies and stories all intertwined with personal experiences of public space. Here, Manhattan reveals its grounds and unfolds the physical and psychological dimensions that reshaped the political aspects of the post 9/11 world.
The exhibition is supported by the Corporation of the Town of Oakville, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council. Oakville Galleries acknowledges the generous sponsorship of Accenture, the invaluable contribution of Susanna Heller herself, the benevolence of the collectors who agreed to lend their works, and Olga Korper Gallery for assistance with this project.
