How to Interpret a Sunset solo exhibition by Jean Borbridge

On Friday September 1st from 7-10PM, we welcome you to join our opening celebration.

Jean Borbridge is a queer, working-class multimedia artist out of Treaty 1. Using photography, video, and installation, Jean seeks to understand the illusion and spectacle of photography in relation to the body, advertisement, labour, and the fallibility of such endeavours. Building community, relationships, and solidarity are crucial to her practice.

Upcoming Exhibition at aceartinc, a bead, a breath.

On Friday, October 6 from 6-9PM, we welcome you to join our opening celebration.

Carrie Allison is a nêhiýaw, Métis, and mixed European descent multidisciplinary visual artist based in K’jipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, Nova Scotia). She grew up on the unceded and unsurrendered lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Her maternal roots and relations are based in maskotewisipiy (High Prairie, Alberta), Treaty 8. Situated in K’jipuktuk since 2010, her practice responds to her maternal nêhiýaw and Métis ancestry, thinking through intergenerational cultural loss and acts of reclaiming, resilience, resistance, and activism, while also thinking through notions of allyship, kinship and visiting. Her practice is rooted in research and pedagogical discourses. Old and new technologies are combined to tell stories of the land, continuance, growth, and of healing.

Updated Governance

As an artist-run gallery, aceartinc. should be a community space where ideas can be shared, discussed and debated fearlessly but not without accountability.
