Hosted by Indefinite Arts Centre

Location

ATB Branch for Arts & Culture, 102 8 Ave SW, Calgary, AB, Canada

Through January 4th
Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Resulting from a workshop, Limitless Realities asks a simple but powerful question: if you could create and step inside an alternative reality that better understands you, what kind of a world would you create? Over three studio sessions, IAC artists were asked to explore ways of combining drawing, painting, backdrops, green screens, and digital photography to reimagine, design, and superimpose themselves into new and alternative worlds of their own manifesting.

Whether overtly political, nostalgic, or simply playful, these imagined realities exemplify the sentiment that if we want to change or revise the current trajectory of our future, it is easier to start by editing and exploring alternatives in the present. Reimaging our surroundings goes hand in hand with reimagining ourselves. By providing space, care, and respect for new stories, narratives, and portrayals, we hold ourselves accountable for producing the powerful magic necessary for realizing more equitable and responsible present realities.

This exhibition features the works of: Adeel Sadiq, Amber Heath, Angie Tremblay, Anil Singh, Brittany Osiowy, Carla Marjanen, Christina Stenhouse, Gwyn Howell, David Oppong, Daniel Desaulniers, Jessica Kowalski, Jonathan Stel, Kathy Austin, Kacey Salkeld, Laura LaPeare, Lauren MacMilan, Leonka Kaluha, Matt McCorquindale, Meg Ohsada, Michael Marjoram, Misty McCorquindale, Peter Erglis, Riley McNeil, Rowan Drysdale, Tony French
