Melika Hashemi's #FleeingTheFolio series is a literal approach to "displacement." She inserts characters from Persian miniatures into photographs of Canadian sites, where their presence is reimagined. These characters consequently feel foreign in their new context: an experience lived daily by displaced persons.
Reception and Artist Talk: Thursday, August 2, 6 PM
Those Who Walk Between Us features new paintings by Kitchener-based artist, Sherry Czekus. Each painting immerses the viewer in busy streets where the crowd fills the frame and blurs into a patchwork of colour and pattern.
