Between One and Another gathers key works selected from over thirty years of art production including significant statements on feminist issues evolving through that time period. Between One and Another illustrates international connections and intends to facilitate dialogue around the individual’s role within society and within the cycles of life.
Performance: Sweeping Change
A performance by the artists, Sweeping Change, will take place in the courtyard of the CCI during the opening of the exhibition.
This exhibition has received support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Calgary 2012 and the Cultural Capital of Canada program, and the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris.
11 May 2012, Colloquium: Sweeping Changes
This colloquium seeks to address the influence of feminist thought on art, both in France and elsewhere, and poses the questions: Did the video and performance artists of the 80s make sweeping changes? Is it time now for an assessment of further changes to be made? The social, historical and regional contexts of the works on show at the CCI will be discussed by writers, curators and the artists.
The artists Pauline Cummins and Sandra Vida are joined by the following participants: Mireille Perron, French-Canadian artist and writer, Ann Cvetkovich, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies, University of Texas, Agnès Aubague, French artist, Charlotte Gould, Senior lecturer in British art at the Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris.
All are welcome; those that would like to participate in a short feminist action are invited to wear black.
