NEWS RELEASE
180 PROJECTS
****************************
Join 180 Projects for the closing reception of our current exhibition, Visiting, which features the work of young Indigenous women and two-spirit artists. Featured artists Shelby Gagnon, Roxanne Martin, Samantha Pine-Bennett, and Rihkee Strapp will have a variety of works on display including painting, sculptural works and prints.

The closing reception will take place on Friday, Nov. 22, 7 - 9 p.m., at 180 Projects at 180 Gore St. It is free and open for all to attend. Light refreshments will be served. The Gallery space is a semi-accessible space, please contact us with any accessibility concerns at oneeightprojects@gmail.com.

Visiting is a deliberate act of sharing physical place or holding space to create and strengthen new and long-standing connections. Visiting is also putting on tea, nurturing, laughing, and hosting with intention – doing things tenderly, even if it takes longer. Likewise, this exhibition offers an extended meeting. The artists’ voices converse with one another, steeping together to create new narratives that present expressions of identity and contemporary and traditional practices and ways of knowing.

Baawaating has been a meeting place for Indigenous people since time immemorial. This exhibition, which brings together works by local and visiting young Indigenous women and two-spirit artists, carries that tradition. Visiting invites guests to stay a while and consider what you may bring in terms of energy or intention to this space, place and gathering.
