MAKE/SHIFT

Alexis Bulman

Gallery 1 / Gallery 2
Sep 11 - Oct 24, 2020

Curated by Hannah Keating

Alexis Bulman is an emerging artist from Prince Edward Island, currently based in Montreal. Her performance, sculpture, and installation work frequently draws on community and collaboration to explore themes of trust, care, belonging, and access in public space. The artist’s investigations are achieved through deep engagements with materials and process. From lumber to sidewalk salt to discarded household objects, Bulman uses materials as sites for sharp and, at times, playful intervention, relying on the instincts of her own body to inform her conversations with materials and movement. In MAKE/SHIFT, Bulman uses sheets of drywall and the gallery’s physical architecture to bring attention to the barriers, both physical and ideological, that continue to exist in the contemporary art world. Employing a disability framework, the work invites audiences to explore ableism in the gallery setting.

Upcoming

The Hidden Anatomy Exhibition and Artist Residency


Nov 6 - Dec 19, 2020

Organized by Bennett Bedoukian

The Hidden Anatomy brings together the disassociated. The elements of work, practice, repetition, and experimentation that are done behind closed doors are brought to the forefront. It is an exposition of how and why choices are made and presented. This is not a negation of the past; this is a drawing out. An examination. Accepting our failures, and moving through them. This is a negation of mediocrity. An acceptance of learning. A willingness to listen.

This exhibition explores the ways in which Two Spirit, trans, and Indigiqueer artists enact queer futures to think about ethics, consent, and relationships. By engaging with kink, we [gijiit] use it as a tool for seeking decolonial love and kinship. Participating artists include Dayna Danger, Nico Williams, Arielle Twist, Lacie Burning, Kablusiak, and RJ Jones.
