Common Ground: Art at Bissell 2016

May 1–31, 2016
Faculty of Information, Claude T. Bissell Building
140 St. George St

Common Ground explores topics as diverse as homelessness, gender, and diaspora, drawing on each artist’s unique experience of—and relationship to—the theme of displacement. All artworks have been produced by emerging artists affiliated with community-engaged organizations. Through their photographs, paintings, mixed-media collages, and one mural, artists demonstrate that the creative process can foster a common sense of belonging in a foreign place—in other words, that art can be their common ground.

Curated by Madeleine Adamson, Annissa Malvoisin and Camille-Mary Sharp
