FLOURISHING: SOMEHOW WE STAY ATTUNED is the first of four exhibitions that make up the series, FLOURISHING. Featuring the work of seven artists from across Canada, this exhibition series addresses the complexities of what it means to flourish, and how flourishing exists in harmony with, and in juxtaposition to, suffering.  The artists do not present simple answers but rather transform the gallery into a forum, unfolding debate – within themselves, with each other, and with the audience.
Ferguson’s work explores the Trans experience; how Trans individuals embody themselves and their environments. Owusu-Ansah’s work as a Deaf artist seeks to deepen audiences’ perception of visual art, and understanding of how Deaf folks navigate a hearing world. Punjani’s work asks audiences to interact with their bodies and their surroundings in new contextual ways. Each artist uses their work as a springboard for us to challenge our understandings of bodies, both our own and those of others.
Tangled Art Gallery is in a barrier-free location. Audio description will be available for the exhibit. We will have ASL interpreters and attendant care for events. Service animals are welcome. Please help us to make the gallery scent-free.
