TOIL HERE is a group exhibition and curatorial collaboration between the Mayworks Kjipuktuk/Halifax Festival and the Khyber Centre for the Arts. Featured in this exhibition are works by artists Alex Antle, Antoinette Karuna, Clara Gough, Curtis Botham, Heather Cromwell, Kim Cain, and Michelle Roy, as well as by Mi’kmaq water protectors Cathy Martin, Gnat Na’pi, and Darlene Gilbert. Using the languages of traditional domestic craft and fine art, the artists explore different facets of rural life, labour and justice, and together disrupt stereotypical notions of what rural “Maritime” art can be and speak to.
A video tour of TOIL HERE will be released on May 20th as a complement to the exhibition. The video will contain captioned interviews with each of the artists.
Please adhere to Public Health Guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort. Please respect the gallery’s instructions for masking, distancing and travel. Stay home if you do not feel well! A video tour of the exhibition will be released on May 20th.
