Laurie Kang Beolle
6 October 2019 – 5 January 2020

Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens

Bringing together research in fields such as biology, feminist theory and science fiction with reflections on her own history, the work of Laurie Kang takes as its point of departure the conditions and structures of the body, and the means through which it is delineated, apprehended and situated sociopolitically. Frequently working with unfixed, continually sensitive materials, Kang's works create conditions of encounter rooted in the tactile, the embodied and the affective, staging scenes that are both literally and metaphorically primordial and in flux. For this, her first solo museum project, the Toronto-based artist will create a new site-specific installation that responds to the architecture of Gairloch Gardens.

Georgia Dickie

6 October 2019 – 5 January 2020 Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square

The installations of Toronto-based artist Georgia Dickie are composed from an ever-growing collection of found objects that she accrues in her studio. She selects and positions these according to an ulterior logic that eschews the values and meanings we usually assign to things. Staging, grouping, balancing, and placing are a primary focus of this artist's practice, activities that makes her presence integral to the presentation of the work.
